“I felt like it was really solid golf, I didn’t get the most out of it I possibly could, but another solid day and two more of those I should be right there.

“I actual putted really well today and made nothing. The greens were a little beat up and it was hard to make putts. But I rolled it really well and I rolled it how I wanted to, I just didny’t get any to go in.”

Tom Hoge moved into second place at 13-under after carding a 66.

I didn’t really know what to expect. The forecast I think was 10 to 20 for today and really felt fortunate that we got through 17 holes without the wind really coming up, just our last hole there it got gusting.

“But just a solid day for me. Again a lot of good birdie chances, would like to have hit a few wedge shots closer there for a few holes, but happy where I’m at. And I think we might have some wind again tomorrow as well at La Quinta, so just got to go play another good solid round.”
