St Jude Championship Round 3 Recap

Glover keeps lead with hot start – dramatic final round in store

If Lucas Glover was nervous yesterday, he certainly didn’t show any signs of it. 

Making long and difficult putts look easy, Glover posted birdies on four of his first six holes to help extend his lead. 

With Glover pouring it on out in front, some of the game’s biggest stars struggled to keep up. 

Many were expecting Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy to make their moves, but neither was able to muster much of a challenge and will need to come from way off the pace to secure a dramatic victory today.

Since making an electric start in 2023, Max Homa has now gone thirteen starts without posting a top 5 finish. That poor record looks set to change here courtesy of a stunning 65, which included a stretch of five birdies in seven holes. He will start today three behind.

Another man who made his move yesterday was Tommy Fleetwood. After a couple of years of inconsistent form, the Englishman has rediscovered his swing and has come desperately close on several occasions to winning his first PGA title. In the mix again, his third successive round of 66 will see him start today two strokes behind Glover. 

St Jude Championship Round 4 Betting Preview

Lucas Glover is aiming to win back-to-back titles for the first time in his career and, in the process, score a sixth PGA title. 

Remarkably Glover has now held a tournament lead through his last seven rounds following his gate-to-wire success at last week’s Wyndham Championship.

Although the big American would have been delighted to end yesterday’s third round on top, there would have been some regret as he missed two short and easy putts, which would have separated him further from the rest of the field. 

With some pundits suggesting he looked slightly fatigued at the close of play yesterday, it will be fascinating to see whether he can keep it all together today. 

Taylor Moore comes next in the betting and he will start as Glover’s closest competitor. By no means a star name on Tour, Moore ensured his place in the top 70 of the FedEx Playoffs thanks to a win at this year’s Valspar Championship. 

Moore has been brilliant off the tee and has just dropped four shots through his first 56 holes. More of that today will certainly keep him in the mix.

Rounding out the top three is Tommy Fleetwood. 

Having made the top ten in four of his last five starts, Fleetwood is hitting form at exactly the right time. Three successive rounds of 66 have put him right into contention, the question is whether he can finally close it out. 

Of those outside the top three, it could be worth keeping an eye on Viktor Hovland. The Norwegian got off to a disastrous start, shooting +2 in his first round. Since then, he has picked up 11 shots in his last 36 holes and he would have been closer to the leaders had it not been for a double bogey on the final hole yesterday. Just five strokes back, he could be the value play of today.
