This week: Quicken Loans National, Thursday through Sunday, Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, Gainesville, Virginia.
In the field: Olympia’s Andres Gonzales and University Place’s Michael Putnam.
Putnam’s third-round score: 4-over-par 75.
Position: Putnam (1-under 212) is tied for 63rd, 13 strokes behind co-leaders Kevin Chappell and Troy Merritt (14-under 199). Gonzales (3-over 145) missed the cut Friday.
Recap: It was an inopportune time for Putnam to have a stinker round (five bogeys, one birdie) and drop 44 spots on the leaderboard — he needs good finishes to keep his PGA Tour card. He two-putted from 25 feet for birdie on the fifth hole, but he made bogeys at No. 9 (tee shot into water on par-3 hole), No. 10 (three-putt from 40 feet), No. 14 (missed 3-footer for par) and No. 17 (three-putt from 45 feet).
Putnam’s tee time Sunday: 6:02 a.m. (PDT) off the first tee.
