Charles Schwab Challenge R3

Kevin Na out in front at Colonial Country Club, Spieth in T2

May 23-26
Colonial CC, Fort Worth, Texas
$7,300,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 4



Kevin Na overcame a double-bogey seven to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The 35-year-old, looking for his third PGA Tour title, carded a one-under 69 to go clear on nine under at Colonial Country Club near Fort Worth after overnight leader Jonas Blixt slipped back after a 74.

However, Na’s round would have been better had he not thinned a bunker shot from the greenside sand at the 11th after being distracted by a spectators’ phone ringing and then duffed his chip back.

“I played solid the whole front nine and after a double-bogey I grouped it together,” he told Sky Sports.

“If I shoot a few under par I should stay ahead of the other guys and I should be all right.”


There are 14 players within five shots of the lead with Jordan Spieth – who looked like he was returning to form at last week’s US PGA Championship – lurking ominously in the group in a tie for second on seven under after he shot a 68.

Blixt, at five under, is still not out of it but four bogeys and no birdies saw him surrender his 36-hole advantage.

Former Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk, at 49, is also just two back after a round of 68.
