Trevor Immelman hit two 35-foot puts in a remarkable five-hole stretch during which he went six under par in a round that saw him tie the course record of 62.

“That’s always going to help your round, that’s for sure,” Immelman said. “I played real well today, drove the ball well, hit some nice iron shots and made some putts. It really was a fun day.”

He is currently tied for third along with Webb Simpson, and trails leader Billy Horschel, who is still on the course, by three strokes.

Immelman is currently enjoying his first completely healthy season on tour.

“It’s the first year that I’ve gotten to play when I want to play and practice when I want to practice,” Immelman said. “With all that work, I’ve started to see some better signs And with those better signs, I’ve become more confident. So it’s really just that type of a process and it’s been fun for me to be able to come out and compete this year without taking breaks.”

His 62 matches the course record set by Charles Howell III in last year's tournament set in the second round.
