Austin Eckroat’s high school putter is hot, final group stuck in neutral among takeaways from Saturday at the AT&T Byron Nelson

MCKINNEY, Texas — On a day when tee times were moved up and groups were sent off both tees in threesomes to avoid potential afternoon weather, the sun baked TPC Craig Ranch.

And while the sun was out, the scores were low. The third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson is complete, and although a couple of the names near the top are the same, numerous others find themselves in contention with 18 holes to play.

There are 11 golfers within three shots of the lead heading to Sunday, including world No. 2 Scottie Scheffler, who would regain the top spot with a win.

Here are takeaways from the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson.
