Will Zalatoris also finished his round, recording a 66 to move into a tie for 15th at seven under. Zalatoris parted ways with his caddy, Ryan Goble, after Friday’s second round.

“It was the hardest decision I’ve had to make in my golfing career,” Zalatoris said Saturday. “Ryan is a brother for life. We had a tough month together and it was starting to affect our relationship.

“Obviously you can tell how difficult this decision was for me, especially the timing, but I think it was just getting a bit unhealthy for both of us and obviously it hurts.”

Zalatoris said Joel Stock will be on his bag during the FedExCup playoffs.
