Tracking local golfers on the PGA Tour for June 13, 2015

This week: FedEx St. Jude Classic, Thursday through Sunday, TPC Southwind, Memphis, Tennessee.

In the field: Gig Harbor’s Kyle Stanley and University Place’s Andrew Putnam.

Stanley’s third-round score: 5-over-par 75.

Positions: Stanley (5-over 215) is tied for 72nd, 14 strokes behind co-leaders Fabian Gomez and Greg Owen (9-under 201). Putnam (14-over 154) missed the cut Friday, tying for 150th.

Recap: On a difficult scoring day, Stanley was hanging tough, sitting at even par through 14 holes. He had just made back-to-back birdies at No. 12 (22-foot putt) and No. 13 (63-footer). But from the fairway on No. 15, he plopped his approach shot into the greenside pond, leading to the first of two triple bogeys. The second one came at No. 18, where his tee shot and his approach from the rough (after a drop) found the water.

Stanley’s tee time Sunday: 5:24 a.m. (PDT) off the first tee.
