Woodland surges into Greenbrier contention with 64


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Gary Woodland finished his third round at The Greenbrier Classic more than two hours before the leaders even teed off, but he was still able to get himself into contention with a 6-under 64.

“The greens were perfect this morning, so fortunately I hit it well and gave myself some chances,” he said. “Still left some out there, obviously tough making bogey on the last, but all in all I played well today and hopefully moved up quite a bit.”

A combination of injuries and swing changes have prevented Woodland from contending much recently, but he maintained after the round that he’s turned a corner with both.

“I dealt with a hand injury for the last year and a half,” he said. “This game's tough enough when you're healthy let alone when you're battling injuries for that long. You add the swing changes and that in there, it was a tough year and a half, but we've turned the corner and we're working upwards now.”
