You Oughta Know: Woodland 1 for 5 with 54-hole lead


Gary Woodland will take a one-shot lead over Pat Perez into the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Here's what You Oughta Know heading into Sunday in Playa del Carmen, Mexico:

• Woodland is in search of his third career victory. The long driver has six runner-ups, but has yet to cash in for win No. 3 on Tour.

• This is the sixth 54-hole lead of the 32-year-old's career. Woodland successfully converted a 54-hole lead to win the Barracuda (née Reno-Tahoe) in 2013 but has failed to close four other times. Players with a one-shot lead through three rounds have held on to win just 26.8 percent of the time the last four seasons.

• Woodland leads the field in greens in regulation, having found 48 of 54 putting surfaces. Already 18 under, he'll attempt to break the tournament scoring record of minus-21 Sunday.

• One back, Perez, who tied for seventh last week in Las Vegas, is a combined 36 under over his last eight rounds of golf. His Saturday 62 missed the El Camaleón tournament record by one. The Tour veteran has won just once in 378 starts, at the 2009 CareerBuilder Challenge (née Bob Hope).

• Two behind, Scott Piercy is chasing his fourth win in the last seven seasons. Piercy was runner-up twice to Dustin Johnson last season in back-to-back starts at the U.S. Open and WGC-Bridgestonea and finished third last month at the WGC-HSBC Champions.

• Trailing by five, Jason Bohn is a combined 59 under par in his last 15 rounds at El Camaleón. Each of the previous four winners of this event have trailed entering the final round.

• Finally, 22-year-old Jon Rahm (-8) just played his 25th consecutive PGA Tour round of par or better, a third-round 69. That is the longest such streak by any player age 22 or younger in the last 30 years.
