Looked to be stuck in a group at 3-under par until posting an eagle on No. 13. He got to 6-under briefly before a bogey on No. 17 dropped him from the lead.
After a birdie on No. 11 improved him to 2-under, he bogeyed Nos. 12 and 13 before playing out the round without incident.
Began day with a pair of bogeys, but closed the front nine with a pair of birdies. A birdie on 15 was negated by a bogey on 17.
Double bogey on No. 7 and consecutive bogeys to close the round cost him a shot at finishing under par. He had been 2-under on the back nine until the poor finish.
