Hunter Mahan shoots flawless 65
By Bernie D'Amato under PGA Championship


Hunter Mahan added to the excitement at Valhalla with a bogey-free 65 to move in a tie for 11th place at seven-under total. Several players have shot 66 in the third round, but Mahan has the low round so far.

Hunter said, “Today some of those putts that would have lipped out, lipped in today. Making those 10 to 15‑footers are what I need to do to shoot a good round and I was able to do that today and I haven’t been able to do that in the last few weeks.”

He added, “Confidence is building every day. I feel like I can just set up to the ball and go swing right now and not think too much.”

It’s all about putting and confidence at the highest level of professional golf.
