QUOTING COACH Bill McDonald
"Caleb played really well, and Scott had a pretty solid round. We are really close to playing well as a team, and I think the guys are a little frustrated overall. Hoverer, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this team go low tomorrow for the final round.”

Proveaux has now shot under-par twice to begin the 2017-18 season with his 69 (-3) on Saturday. He just missed tying his career 18-hole low of 68 today. It’s the second time in his young career Proveaux has shot in the 60s. He’s posted one eagle, nine birdies and 19 pars in 36 holes at The Farm.
