Jason Day and Cameron Tringale posted a score of 8-under-par 64 in the modified alternate shot format and took a three-stroke lead over Graeme McDowell and Gary Woodland to the final round of the Franklin Templeton Shootout at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla.
Tringale, from Laguna Niguel, and Day (pictured) followed their record-tying 17-under 55 in the day one scramble with another solid round that included an eagle and six birdies.
“I think if there were more boards out there, I would probably be watching because I tend to watch a lot more scoreboards than Cameron,” Day said. “I like to know what I need to do. That may add some pressure.”
McDowell and Woodland posted a 63, while defending champions Matt Kuchar and Harris English were another shot back in third after a 66, with Charles Howell III and Scott Verplank were strokes back in fourth following a 64.
Billy Horschel and Ian Poulter totaled 65 and were seven shots behind in a tie for fifth with Patrick Reed and Brandt Snedeker, who also finished at 65, and Keegan Bradley and Camilo Villegas, who came in at 67.
