Woodland in mix again, credits work with Norman


IRVING, Texas – In his previous 12 starts before this week’s HP Byron Nelson Championship, Gary Woodland hadn’t missed a single cut and has claimed eight top-25 results.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see him contending for yet another title.

Rounds of 68-67-66 have Woodland in a share of third place, just one stroke behind Louis Oosthuizen and Brendon Todd. He understands that it could take a low round tomorrow on such a bunched leaderboard.

“I try not to worry about everybody else and continue to do what I'm doing,” he explained. “I'm playing good right now, so continuing to get those putts to go in and we'll be pretty good tomorrow.”

After a Saturday round that included six birdies and a double bogey, Woodland credited his improved putting to recent work with Greg Norman.

“He's helped me with everything. He's been great for me. Obviously I'm starting to learn what we're doing; I'm comfortable with what we're doing now and continue to build on that.”
