Dylan Frittelli battled his way to a two-under 70 on Saturday in the PGA Tour’s ZOZO Championship @ Sherwood in Thousand Oaks, California, leaving him at 15-under-par for the tournament, four strokes off the lead.

He hit 10 of 18 greens in regulation during his third round, making five birdies and three bogeys as he battled to match the consistent brilliance of Justin Thomas, who added a five-under 67 to his opening pair of 65s. Thomas led by one from Spain’s John Rahm, who carded a 63 to close in on the American.

Behind the leaders, and behind Frittelli, Shaun Norris engineered a 22-position climb up the leaderboard of the 78-man field with his third round of five-under-par 67. That moved him to eight-under for the tournament and into a share of 39th. He hit nine of 13 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation, and had a great day on the green leaving no misses on putts within 10 feet.

He had a fantastic chip-in on the 186-yard par-three 15th. His tee shot went 200 yards to the left rough and his second shot went 23 yards to the fringe where he had a third shot chip-in to save par.
