Harmon rolls to five-shot lead after third round of Dakota Dunes Open

See also

Matt Harmon of the U.S. went white hot yesterday to post a 9-under par 63 at Dakota Dunes Golf Links as he blasted open a five-stroke lead heading into today’s final round of the Dakota Dunes Open presented by SaskTel.

The 29-year-old and his wife Pagiel have their new son Eli, who turns 10 weeks old today, at a tournament for the first time this week in Saskatoon, and so far the trip has been a success.

His stellar performance at the PGA Tour Canada event opened up lots of space between him and second-place player Robert Karlsson of Sweden, while fellow American Chris Williams is six shots back.

Harmon carded seven birdies on the day, including on two of his final three holes, to go with an eagle to reach 18-under par through 54 holes. The former Michigan State Spartan played the Web.com Tour in 2012 and 2013 and is looking to make his way back starting with a win at Dakota Dunes tomorrow.

Harmon said that having his family here has made things easier than the first three events, when he played well but had his mind back home with his new family.

Karlsson shot a 7-under 65 to hold second place alone, while Chris Williams, formerly the world’s highest-ranked amateur and a Ben Hogan Award winner at the University of Washington, shot 64 to grab third place heading into the final round.

KARLSSON HOPING TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF

Robert Karlsson is used to being mistaken on leaderboards for the 11-time European Tour winner and former Ryder Cup player of the same name. With a strong start to his first PGA Tour Canada season, however, the 25-year-old is well on the way to making a name for himself.

Karlsson, who has finished in the top-10 each of the last two weeks on PGA Tour Canada, finished with an eagle at the par-5 18th to sit second through 54 holes.

Currently 11th on the Order of Merit, Karlsson’s start to his first season on PGA Tour Canada has been a strong one, and could become an outstanding one with a solid finish today.

Notes:

  • Matt Harmon’s five-stroke lead through 54 holes is tied with Joel Dahmen at the Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON as the largest this season and the largest in the PGA Tour Canada era.
  • Round four tee times have been moved up due to anticipated weather Saturday afternoon. Players will tee off the first and 10th tees in threesomes from 8:20 a.m. to 10:10 a.m.
  • Clint Schiller, the only Saskatchewan native to make the cut, shot a third round 73 to sit tied for 49th.
