Adam Scott fired a 6-under par 65 during the third round of The Barclays at Bethpage Black.
Scott, currently ranked at No. 7 in the world, was helped greatly by his putter today, highlighted by two long bomb 45 foot birdie putts on the 12th and 15th hole.
Said Scott, during a quick interview with PGATour.com, “I’ve played well all week. I just haven’t holed any putts. Then I holed two long ones on the back nine and it feels good.”
Put the feet up, Adam.
You deserve it. https://t.co/0dtrI6zU1v

And another from Jason Sobel…
Adam Scott on Bethpage, three days ago: "I feel it sets up well for me, so I'm looking for some good stuff." Now tied for lead. Good stuff.
