Mahan looking toward Ryder Cup consideration

RSS

PARAMUS, N.J. – Hunter Mahan stopped short of referring to his third-round 3-under 68 at The Barclays as “easy,” but he wouldn’t categorize it as very difficult, either.

“I just felt like I had good looks and if I didn't make them, then they were tap‑ins,” he explained. “I was hitting fairways and greens and I was putting for birdie all day. … I don't want to say an easy round, but it wasn't too stressful, I guess.”

Mahan moved to third place entering the final round, just one stroke behind co-leaders Jim Furyk and Jason Day.

Which, of course, leads to an underlying subplot: With the Ryder Cup captain’s picks coming up following next week’s Deutsche Bank Championship, he would love to put himself in the forefront of that conversation.

“I know a win would definitely improve my chances. So you know, right now, it's just with the FedEx Cup playoffs and everything - a win means a lot from a points perspective and everything else. Got to be aggressive and go out and try to win.”
