Here are the winners and losers from Day 3:

Winners

Sahith Theegala

The 23-year-old remained atop of the leaderboard for the third straight day after carding 5-under 67. Theegala scored his second-consecutive 67 to get to 18 under, one shot better than a quartet of players entering Sunday. Theegala has continued his streak of “playing well” only two weeks after he earned exemption on the PGA Tour.

Matthew Wolff

Wolff used the momentum from his 36-foot putt to make the cut on the nose on Friday to to climb up the leaderboard Saturday. Wolff birdied six times in the third round to score 65, his lowest score since last season.

The Little Rock native slid down the leaderboard and is tied for 66th after he shot 77 in the third round. In first tournament since getting hip surgery five months ago, Ogletree said he had no expectations for this weekend, although he entered Saturday in the top 10 on the leaderboard.
