You Oughta Know: 2014 Zurich Classic


AVONDALE, La. – After three rounds, Seung-Yul Noh leads Keegan Bradley by two shots at the Zurich Classic. Here’s what You Oughta Know entering the final round at TPC Louisiana:

• This is Noh’s first-ever 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour. His previous best position entering the final round was T-2 at the 2012 AT&T National. He wound up in a tie for fourth.

• Bogey-free through 54 holes, Noh could become the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 (Greater New Orleans Open) to win a tournament without dropping a shot. Charles Howell was the last player to play all 72 holes without a bogey, at the 2010 Greenbrier.

• Through three rounds, Noh is ranked in the top 10 in greens hit (T-3), strokes gained-putting (7th), driving distance (4th), proximity to the hole (7th) and putts made distance (7th).

• Bradley, a three-time Tour winner, is searching for his first victory since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He has only two top 10s in 12 starts this season, including a runner-up at Bay Hill.

• Ben Martin led by three shots at the start of the third round, but he was the only player in the top 40 to post an over-par score on Day 3 (73). He enters the final round four shots behind.

Robert Streb, alone in third place and three shots off the lead, has never finished inside the top 10 on the PGA Tour. His best finish is a T-11 at the 2013 Farmers Insurance Open.

• Andrew Svoboda is another player without a top 10 in his PGA Tour career. He is tied for fourth, four shots back, entering the final round.

• The third-round leader on Tour has gone on to win just 10 times in 22 tries this season. In New Orleans, the 54-hole leader has won four of the past five years.
