CANONSBURG, Pa. – Joël Stalter (73-68-75 – 216, +3) played third-round action Saturday at the Web.com Tour’s Mylan Classic after being one of 67 players and the only one of the field’s six amateurs to make the cut the previous day. Stalter fell 18 spots on the leaderboard Saturday into a tie for 54th after his four-over par 75 at the par-71, 6,951-yard Southpointe Golf Club.
“I’m disappointed about today,” Stalter said. “It was tough with the rain and the course was harder with some tough pin positions. I hit too many bad iron shots that cost me a lot, but I hung tough and am looking forward to a better day tomorrow to finish the tournament on a good note.”
Starting on the back nine, Stalter got to three-over par early in his round with back-to-back bogeys on the par-three 12th and par-five 13th before another on the par-four 16th. He had the first of his two birdies on the par-four 17th and made the turn at two-over but had a double bogey on the par-four first and a bogey on the par-three third before his second and final birdie on the par-four fourth.
Ben Martin (66-67-67 – 200, -13) will take a two-shot lead over Whee Kim (66-65-73 – 204, -9) into Sunday’s fourth and final round. Golf Channel will continue television coverage of the event Sunday from 4-6 p.m. PT.
