Former University of Kansas golf standout Gary Woodland shot a 3-over 73 in Round 3 at the St. Jude Championship on Saturday in Memphis.

The 38-year-old former Jayhawk just made the cut on Friday and did nothing on Saturday to push himself up the leaderboard and into contention.

He finished Saturday at 1-over for the tournament in a tie for 66th place, 14 shots off the lead. His third round featured three bogeys, two birdies and a double bogey to go with 12 pars.

Woodland, who entered the week ranked 77th in the FedEx Cup standings, will need a solid effort Sunday to earn a spot at next week’s second round, which will feature the top 70 players remaining competing at the BMW Championship.

From there, the top 30 advance to the FedEx Cup finals in Atlanta.

The 2019 U.S. Open champion and Topeka native will tee off in Round 4 at 7:20 a.m. on Sunday.
