Tiburón GC, Naples, Florida
$3,500,000
Round 2, Round 3


Harold Varner III and Ryan Palmer shot a 17-under 55 in the QBE Shootout to match the scramble record since the event moved to Tiburón Golf Club in 2001.

They eagled the par-5 17th and made 15 birdies to tie the scramble record set by Greg Norman and Steve Elkington in 2005 and matched by Jason Day and Cameron Tringale in 2014.


Jason Kokrak and J.T. Poston lie two strokes back after a 57. The teams will play a modified alternate shot Saturday and close with best-ball on Sunday.

"Hopefully, we'll both hit good tee shots and then go from there, but the way he's putting and the confidence I have in my iron play, I think that will be the idea," Palmer said. "Hit a lot of good iron shots, put the putter in his hand."
