Sahith Theegala remains on track to win his first-ever PGA title and will take a two-stroke lead into the final round of this year’s Fortinet Championship. Here the 2023 Fortinet Championship Round 4 Preview & Round 3 Recap.
Trying to chase the American down today are a trio of players – Cameron Davis, Justin Thomas and S.H Kim. They will all be hoping to post a score on a day that promises plenty of low scoring.
After several near misses, Sahith Theegala has put himself in prime position to win his first-ever PGA title.
Starting the third round level at the top of the leaderboard with S.H Kim, Theegala had to remain patient as his first birdie of the day came on the par 3 8th.
With his first birdie on the board, Theegala would never look back and quickly became the sole leader after netting four more birdies on the back nine. Through his first 54 holes, the world number 37 has just dropped two shots and if he can keep up this level of form he will certainly be tough to overthrow.
Heading into this week, Justin Thomas had a point to prove. With many believing his recent level of form was undeserving of a Ryder Cup spot, Thomas has set out to prove the doubters wrong and played some truly special golf yesterday.
His round of 65 was one of his best in the last eighteen months and he looks more than capable of winning his sixteenth PGA title today.
Joining Thomas on -15 is the Australian Cam Davis. Davis showed all of his talents as he dominated the back nine. Closing with five birdies in his last six holes, he will head into today full of confidence and momentum.
Nine players will start within five strokes of Sahith Theegala. Despite Theegala’s lead, low scores are there to be had and the final round of this year’s Fortinet Championship should contain plenty of low scoring.
With his two stroke lead it is Theegala who is the overwhelming favorite for victory. As talented as they come, Theegala has posted numerous top five finishes in his career but hasn’t yet been able to capture that all elusive victory.
He has been putting terrifically and has been very impressive on the par 3s this week. Everything looks set for him to make his breakthrough, the question is whether he can keep his nerve.
Bound to be on Theegala’s tail is Justin Thomas. This version of Justin Thomas has been missing for the last year, but after an up and down season, he seems to have finally rediscovered his swing.
He has been immaculate off the fairways and should give himself plenty of looks for birdie today.
Rounding out the top three in the betting is Cam Davis. The Australian can bomb the ball off the tee but showed he is no slouch on the greens as he lit up the back nine. Unlike Theegala, he already has a PGA title to his name and will be confident of adding to his trophy cabinet.
