This week: RBC Heritage Classic, Thursday through Sunday, Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head, South Carolina.
In the field: Olympia’s Andres Gonzales and University Place’s Michael Putnam.
Third-round scores: Gonzales shot 1-under-par 70.
Positions: Gonzales (1-under-par 212) is tied for 61st, 13 strokes behind leader Troy Merritt (14-under 199). Putnam (7-over 149) missed the cut Friday.
Recap: It would be safe to assume Gonzales did not mind losing to his playing partner Saturday — 65-year-old Hall of Famer Tom Watson, who shot a 69 in the third round. Gonzales made a bogey at the 10th hole to fall to 1 over, but the Capital High School graduate reeled off birdies at No. 11 (wedge approach to 8 feet), No. 13 (16-foot putt) and No. 15 (42-footer). He hit his approach shot in the waste area to the left of the 18th green, leading to a finishing bogey.
Tee time Sunday: Gonzales at 5:40 a.m. (PDT) off the 10th tee.
