A quick look at Saturday’s third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at the 7,425-yard, par-72 TPC Louisiana in Avondale:
LEADING: Seung-Yul Noh, a 22-year-old from South Korea, fired a 7-under-par 65 to grab the outright lead after 54 holes at 18-under 198. He had seven birdies and is bogey-free through 54 holes.
LURKING: Eight players are within five shots: Keegan Bradley (65-200), Robert Streb (68-201), Jeff Overton (67-202), Ben Martin (73-202), Andrew Svoboda (70-202), Paul Casey (64-203) and Charley Hoffman (68-203).
SHOT OF THE DAY: Noh stuck a 51-degree wedge 11 inches from the cup on his second shot to the 347-yard, par-4 16th hole. It covered 112 yards for a kick-in birdie.
KEY STAT: No. 7, a 561-yard, dogleg right par-5, has yielded the most eagles through 54 holes (13) but only one in the third round. Alex Prugh holed a 19-foot putt en route to his 70. He’s at 8-under 208.
LOUISIANA CONNECTIONS: Only three remain from the original starting eight. David Toms (67), a native of Shreveport and two-time LSU All-American, is tied for 28th at 8-under 208. Former LSU All-American Andrew Loupe (71) and former Tulane standout Michael Thompson (75) are tied for 59th at 4-under 212.
