Holmes (70) two behind, but still has chance at third WMPO title

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Despite struggling to keep pace with the field during the third round, J.B. Holmes still heads into Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a shot at No. 3.

Holmes started the day with a one-shot lead at TPC Scottsdale, and he rolled in four birdies on the afternoon. But he also carded three bogeys in an eight-hole stretch in the middle of the round, as a 1-under 70 dropped him into a tie for third at 14 under, two shots behind leader Tony Finau.

“I mean, I caught some bad breaks today,” Holmes said.
