Live blog: 2017 Memorial Tournament, Round 3

The PGA Tour is in Dublin, Ohio for the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

We are tracking all of Saturday’s third-round action. Follow along…

• • •

4:31 p.m.: Matt Kuchar. Having a week. He’s been sneaking up the board all day and is now alone in second at 10 under following three straight birdies. Trails Daniel Summerhays by two.

4:25 p.m.: The wheels have officially fallen off for Jason Dufner. Having began the day with a  5-shot lead, he now trails leader Daniel Summerhays by 3 after a double bogey at the par-5 11th. Dufner is 5 over for the round thus far and T-2 alongside Matt Kuchar and Jamie Lovemark.

4:15 p.m.: Phil Mickelson will reportedly miss the U.S. Open at Erin Hills to attend his daughter Amanda’s high school graduation. It’s the only major Mickelson has not yet won, but he discussed the decision to withdraw prior to his third round Saturday at the Memorial. Mickelson is currently 4 under for the tournament and T-22.

3:45 p.m.: Bubba Watson is going nuts. He’s 8 under and three shots off the lead after going birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie to start his back nine. That gets him to three under on the round and puts him in contention on the weekend for really the first time all season.

3:30 p.m.: Dufner’s lead is now gone. He finally got something going with birdie at the par-5 7th after four straight bogeys on holes 2-5. That birdie got him back to 11 under and he currently co-leads with Daniel Summerhays. Rickie Fowler is two back at 9 under and Justin Thomas is three back at 8 under.

2:30 p.m.: So much for Jason Dufner’s 5-shot lead entering the day. Dufner has made three bogies in a row after a par at one. He falls to 11 under and now leads Daniel Summerhays but just two. Things just got very, very interesting.
