Garcia leads by 2 at Barclays
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – The greens were so fast that Sergio Garcia didn’t know when the ball was going to stop. He was happy to see the day end with a 2-under 69, giving him a two-shot lead over Nick Watney going into the final round of The Barclays.
Garcia fell out of the lead with a three-putt bogey on the third hole, but he didn’t have another one the rest of the round on a Bethpage Black course that lived up to is tough reputation Saturday because of greens that reminded players of another course on Long Island.
Shinnecock Hills came up more than once. That’s when the USGA lost control of the greens in the final round of the U.S. Open, and even had to water one green in the middle of the round. Bethpage wasn’t that bad, but it was close.
