Moreover, he admitted that there is a thing in the back of his mind when a guy is trying to chase down. Hence, Langer’s goal was to finish ahead of Furyk to safeguard his top spot. But it doesn’t look good at that moment as Jim Furyk is ahead of him at the moment.

Meanwhile, Jim Furyk and Tim Petrovic co-lead the event with a score of -14. And even though Tim Petrovic has a lesser chance than Jim Furyk for getting at the top, he certainly is a top contender to lift the trophy. However, Bernhard is way behind as he is -5 after three rounds, and he would need a miracle to get past Jim Furyk.

Bernhard, who has been consistent throughout the season, was slightly out of sync with his game this week. Hence, he remained behind Furyk, which might cost him the top spot going into the Charles Schwab Cup, the ultimate event on the Champions Tour.
