Aaron Wise led The Honda Classic by six shots during Saturday’s third round at PGA National. He then played his final 13 holes in 7 over par and entered the final round three back.

Undaunted, Wise out-played overnight leader Matt Jones by a couple of shots over the first nine holes on Sunday. Wise began the back nine trailing by one. One hole later, he was down four.

Facing a 27-foot par putt at the par-4 10th, Wise four-putted for a triple-bogey 7. He missed a 4-footer for bogey and a 2 ½-footer for double.

Wise, who was seeking his first PGA Tour win, added a double bogey at the par-4 16th and a bogey at the last for a back-nine 6-over 41. Up a half-dozen shots with 31 holes to play, he finished eight back and tied for 13th.
