In cold, rainy conditions Saturday afternoon, Matthew Wolff rebounded from a second-round 73 with an even-par 70.
Wolff stated on Thursday that he was not at TPC Potomac this week to win a golf tournament, but rather to have fun. He clearly enjoyed himself on Saturday, putting himself back in contention to win the golf tournament.
The former NCAA National Champion began the day eight shots behind 36-hole leader Jason Day, but with an even par round and a three-round total of 2 under par, the world No. 54 will be just two shots behind a group of players tied for third and six shots behind leader Keegan Bradley.
Wolff’s round was highlighted by a spectacular hole-in-one on the par-3 17th hole. Wolff fired a high flop shot that released toward the hole before colliding with the flagstick and sinking to the bottom for a birdie on the 175-yard hole.

Wolff, 23, may win his first PGA Tour victory since winning the 2019 3M Open in only his third professional start if he can get hot on a frigid Sunday at TPC Potomac with Bradley’s support.
