Troy Merritt held a tight grip at the top of the leaderboard as he made his way through Old Greenwood in round three of the 22nd annual Barracuda Championship. Ending his day with two late birdies, Merritt will take a four-point lead (+33) into the final round. Merritt topped the leader board after round three at the 2019 Barracuda Championship where he went on to finish second after Collin Morikawa.
Hot on Merritt’s heels is PGA TOUR rookie Maverick Mcnealy (+29/T2) who is in contention to become the fifth consecutive champion to earn his first PGA TOUR win at the Barracuda Championship.
Playing on a sponsor exemption, Matthias Schwab (+24/8th) needs a two-way tie for second or better to earn Special Temporary Membership; with a victory, he will be fully exempt through the 2022-23 TOUR season and be eligible for the 2020 FedExCup Playoffs.
