A quick recap of the day. Adam Hadwin (the new Mr. 59) is your leader:
6:38 p.m. ET
Here’s the leaderboard with Adam Hadwin on top after his stunning 59. He started the day barely in THE TOP 50! Incredible!
5:10 p.m. ET
No birdie at 16 for Hadwin. Needs to play final two in 1 under for 59.
4:55 p.m. ET
Incredible. Five straight birdies and Hadwin is now -12 through 15. He only needs one birdie in final three holes for 59 on this Par 72.
4:48 p.m. ET
Another birdie! Hadwin is now 11 under through 14. 59 Watch!
4:31 p.m. ET
Adam Hadwin is ON FIRE! He’s on a string of three straight birdies after a run of six consecutive birdies early in the round. Now -10 thru 13 and -14 for the tournament. He’s doing this at La Quinta Country Club today. Hadwin just two back, needs to play final five holes in -3 or better for 59. He has no par 5s left, though.
Here’s his full scorecard, thus far:
Philly Mick, back to 10 under.
4:20 p.m. ET
Oof. Another dropped shot for Swafford as he misses a par putt from just under 10 feet at 17. He’s gone from three-shot lead to trailing now.
4:15 p.m. ET
Hudson Swafford makes an ugly double bogey at No. 16, as he slaps it back and forth over the green a couple of times. Bad short game play proves costly. He’s now -16, and his three-shot lead is gone. Tied with Dominic Bozzelli and Brian Harman.
3:55 p.m. ET
Poor shot from greenside rough leaves Mickelson a mid-range par putt, which he misses. Lefty back down to 9 under.
3:36 p.m. ET
Phil Mickelson would two-putt for par at No. 9, so he goes out in even par.
2:42 p.m. ET
Phil Mickelson has not started great on Saturday. He’s 1 over in his round early. But you know what, plenty of golf left in the day.
