Hideki Matsuyama rides 68 into 3rd place

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—Hideki Matsuyama drained four birdies and had one bogey on Saturday for a 3-under 68 to pull himself into third, three shots off the lead after three rounds at the PGA Tour’s Phoenix Open.The remainder of the second round kicked off the day, which ended with Matsuyama at a three-day total of 12-under 201. Matsuyama started the day in fifth place but decided to keep his eyes off the gallery and on his game, which got him through the third round.Over the first half of the round, he struggled with his shots and the strong putting the previous day had also gone away, leaving him with a birdie and a bogey and unable to improve his score. However, things changed in the second half.“My shots started to improve,” said Matsuyama, who placed the ball 2 to 3 meters from the pin at the 10th, 14th and 15th holes to record birdie after birdie. Matsuyama said he wants to be steady and see where he finishes.“If I’m up there [with the leaders] with three or four holes to play, I’m going to go for [the win],” he said. “But I just want to make sure I hold things together until then.”
