You Oughta Know: 2014 Zurich Classic

RSS

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.
