Troy Matteson shot a 10-under 61 on Thursday at the 2012 John Deere Classic and a three-under 68 on Friday, but despite the fact that he doesn't have a Top 25 finish to his name on the PGA Tour this year, he has continued to lead the field in the early going on Saturday, with two birdies through his first four holes. He's still alone on top of the leaderboard, but he's got plenty of company breathing down his neck.
Brian Harman is alone in second place after two birdies in his first holes. He's paired with Matteson, and that group has stayed hot. Tour rookie Billy Hurley III, who finished fourth at the AT&T National a few weeks ago, is tied for third place two strokes behind Matteson at -13 with John Senden. Hurley has fired seven birdies and no bogeys in his sterling round, which he's one hole from completing. There are eight golfers — including Jamie Lovemark, who's in the clubhouse, and Chris DiMarco (remember him?) — tied at -12, three strokes behind Matteson.
