The third round of the Barclay's tournament saw Sergio Garcia emerge to become the leader after three rounds after shooting a 2-under par, round of 69 which happened to be his worst of the tournament. While Garcia shot 2-under par, Nick Watney who was tied heading into Saturday shot an even par and now trails Garcia by two strokes.
Garcia's second round was mostly inconsistent, especially on the front nine, as he had three bogies, five birdies and 10 pars. He played well, but he kept shuffling through par, birdie and bogie through most of his second round. His third round score was good enough to improve his overall tournament score to 10-under par.
Missouri-native Jeff Maggert had a poor third round and shot his consecutive round of 74 and is now tied for 63rd with a 4-over par and completely out of contention.
