UPDATE NO. 2 (6:32 a.m. ET): Tommy Fleetwood, the hometown boy, is continuing his good form from Day Two. After an opening bogey, he birdied Nos. 2, 5 and 8 to get all the way back to 3 over. He bogeyed No. 9 to go out in 1-under 33. But after par at 10, he’s still under par for the day, and gaining on the top 50. Remember, he needed a sensational 1-under 69 on Friday just to make the cut on the number.
UPDATE NO. 1 (6:25 a.m. ET): We won’t get to any contenders for hours, but there’s still some interesting notes from the early groups. The conditions still aren’t easy, but there are birdies to be made. Ten of 23 players on course are under par for the day. The best score of the bunch is Shaun Norris, who is 4 under through 12 on his round to move to 1 over.
