“I hit my irons great again. I feel like I actually did a better job with that today in terms of just leaving myself more makeable putts,” Hubbard said.

“I’ve been hitting it close all week, but a lot of them have been kind of in tough spots, downhill, down grain. That little stretch I went on, pretty much every putt was just dead straight up the hill, so that was really nice.”

Hubbard, who is in search of his first PGA Tour victory, had just one birdie on his card until he rattled off five straight on 11-15 before another on the last for good measure, turning in a bogey-free round.
