Gary Woodland moves up to 43rd


— Moving Day was kind to former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland on Saturday at the British Open.

Woodland shot his second consecutive round of even par and moved up 25 spots to a tie for 43rd heading into today’s final round.

Woodland erased two front-nine bogeys with an eagle on the par-5 No. 7, the parred out the back nine. At 73-70-70—213 (3 over), Woodland — a Topeka native who played at KU from 2004-07 — is three strokes out of the top 25.

Additionally, Zach Johnson, who played for new KU men’s golf coach Jamie Bermel at Drake, carded the low round of the day at 66 and is tied with Ernie Els for fifth at 5-under, six back of leader Adam Scott.

I hope Gary can finish well in this one. It's been a tough season, what with the weird injury in the Masters. If he can get back to 100% and find that rythym from last season, he should start challenging the leaders every time out, if not be one of them.
