US PGA - Stuart Appleby 66/1 - 2 pts E/W 1/4 1,2,3,4
With a rain interrupted 3rd round, I am backing Stuart Appleby at 66/1 (2pts E/W). He has completed 2/3 of his 3rd round - I think the more holes of the 3rd round completed the better. Although the greens today will be slower (a help), the fairways will be slower (a hindrance) and the rough will be harder to get out of. In addition, for those about to start their round, it will be mentally tough to play 36 holes in a day. If Appleby can post a 3rd round score of +2 (he is currently on +4) I think he could be right in the mix come in the end of round 4.
