Langley in final pairing on Sunday for second time

RSS

DUBLIN, Ohio – It will be little consolation for Scott Langley that he will set out on Sunday at the Memorial Tournament paired with a fellow southpaw.

What will resonate is that he will head out in the day’s final two-ball paired with Bubba Watson, who wrested the lead from Paul Casey on Day 3 at Muirfield Village.

It will be just the second time Langley – who followed a 66 on Friday with a 5-under 67 and is alone in second place – has played in the day’s final pairing on a PGA Tour Sunday. The first came in his first start as a Tour member at last year’s Sony Open, where he closed with an even-par 70 and tied for third.

It will be that lack of experience, more so than his high-profile playing partner, that will be Langley’s biggest concern heading into Round 4.

“I would say last year was tougher than this year for me,” he said. “I rode the ups and downs a little bit more last year than I guess I have this year. I just tried to approach the game and my career with a little more even‑keel attitude.”
