Argentine Emiliano Grillo made this Saturday a great round of 65 strokes to place himself in fourth place in The RSM Classic of the PGA Tour, four hits from the only leader, the American Robert Streb.
With this -5, Grillo completed his best tour so far this tournament, to add 199 (-13) in the general classification.
The Argentine had a route with great inspiration in putting strokes from inside the green, but he also shone on lengths, and his aggressive play at the end gave him a good result, even though he made three bogeys.
But he added an eagle (hole 15) and six birdies, including the two consecutive ones with which he closed the round.
The Colombian Camilo Villegas, meanwhile, also remained in the fight for the title although he made the pair with 70 strokes -three birdies and three bogeys-, which gave him a total of 200 hits (-12) and the fifth position that he shares with two other players, the Americans Kyle Stanley and Kevin Kisner.
The Chilean Joaquín Niemann, who together with the Spanish Rafael Cabrera, overcame the cut (-3) in the day on Friday, this Saturday they continued without improving as both completed their respective routes with signed cards of 70 impacts (even) and added 209 ( -3) that relegated them to 55th place, the last in the ranking they share with five other golfers.
Leader Streb, 33, is seeking his second PGA Tour title, winning his first on October 26, 2014 at the McGladrey Classic. He was perfect in this third round with three birdies on the course of the Sea Island Resort (Seaside) course, with the pair set at 70 strokes.
Johnson and Burgoon, his guards, each achieved records of 65 (-5) and 67 (-3), respectively, to share the second place and have the option to fight for the title when tomorrow, Sunday, the fourth and last round is played of the tournament that distributes prizes worth 6.6 million dollars.
