“It was like a normal round of golf for me, it felt like it,” the 35-year-old told pgatour.com.
“It was playing super easy, so it wasn’t like I had time to be nervous about anything. I just needed to keep making birdies.”
Only 12 of the 83-strong field managed to finished the rain-delayed third round, but sunny skies are expected for the players and Mother’s Day galleries.
Further down the leaderboard, Scott Piercy, Rory Sabbatini and Sebastian Munoz are locked on 13 under with much of their back nines still to play.
