Bohn Shoots 9-Under 61, Tied for Lead at Greenbrier

Article excerpt

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. * Jason Bohn's main goal after barely making the cut at The Greenbrier Classic was to get some extra rest before the final round.

Sweet dreams. And try not to think about being the co-leader heading into Sunday.

Bohn shot a 9-under 61 Saturday and was at 11-under 199, tied with Sean O'Hair, Sung Joon Park and Bryce Molder on the Old White TPC course. O'Hair and Park both shot 66; Molder had a 67.

Bohn started strong with six birdies on the first 10 holes. After a bogey at No. 11, he regrouped with four more birdies over the final five holes

Woods struggled on the back nine, shot 71 and was seven strokes back.

Bohn's round was his best on the PGA Tour and included 14 one- putt greens. He shot 58 in a 2001 Canadian Tour event, the Bayer Championship.

"I just wanted to sleep in to be honest, so now I don't have to get up early in the morning," Bohn said.

Bohn had birdied the final hole in the second round Friday to make the cut on the number at 2 under. He said he'll need a similar round on Sunday to have a chance at winning.

"You've just got to play very aggressive and play smart when you're out of position and aggressive when you're in position," Bohn said.

O'Hair lost to Jordan Spieth in a playoff at the Valspar Championship in March, but had missed cuts in four of his last five events.

Seeking his fifth PGA Tour win and first since 2011, O'Hair had four back-nine birdies Saturday. …
