PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — A day after making the blistering charge to survive the U.S. Open cut, former East Tennessee State golfer Rhys Enoch carded an even-par 71 in Saturday’s third round action from Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Enoch, who shot a 66 on Friday to advance into the weekend, moved 15 spots up the leaderboard following his 71 on Saturday. He is tied for 41st at 2-over-par 215 (78-66-71).

Enoch birdied three straight holes from No. 4-6 to get to 2 under early in Saturday’s third round, but ended up recording three bogeys over a seven-hole stretch on the back nine before a birdie on the par-3 17th moved him back to even par.

Playing in his third career major championship, Enoch is ahead of the likes of Phil Mickelson (T48, +3), Patrick Reed (T48, +3), Tommy Fleetwood (T60, +4), Zach Johnson (T64, +5) and Luke Donald (T72, +6).

Enoch is paired with two-time major champion Martin Kaymer (2014 U.S Open and 2010 PGA Championship) in Sunday’s final round and tees off at 1:50 p.m. EDT. FOX begins its television coverage at noon.

Gary Woodland holds a one-shot lead over Justin Rose heading into the final round at 11-under-par 202.
