Cink could have extended his lead further but missed a par putt from inside five feet at the par-4 3rd and a birdie putt from inside four feet at the par-5 15th. He was -1.464 in Strokes Gained: Putting.

“I was a little bit tied up in the results,” he said, “and it’s something I can recognize and hopefully get better at tomorrow. But it’s natural; it happens to everybody.”

After setting a new 36-hole record, his 18-under 195 has set a new 54-hole record previously set by Justin Leonard in 2002 of 16-under 197.

Cink has won two out of twelve times he has held the lead or a share of it after 54 holes on the PGA Tour.

“I’ve been there before,” said Cink. “I’ve certainly been nervous and thrown up on myself and I’ve also played great in that situation. You know, I think it’s a lot better to embrace it and enjoy it and feel the tingle as opposed to trying to act like it’s not there.”

Collin Morikawa signed for a 67 that included three consecutive birdies starting on the 13th and a single bogey at the 7th.

“Thankful to get three in a row and give myself at least somewhat of a shot come tomorrow,” said Morikawa. “Yeah, I mean, it shows that there’s 62s, there’s 63s out on this golf course, I just have to go out there and find it. Each day I’ve shown little specks of good golf, I’ve just got to put it all together for tomorrow’s final round if I want a chance.”
