During Saturday's round three, The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft transitioned from Fountain Hills to Vista Del Camino, and the scoring continued to stay hot for the MPO and FPO divisions. 

In the FPO division, four women tied for the hot round at -2, all of whom made the cut. Madison Walker started the day below the cut line and with her -2 day she was able to move above the cut line and into the cash. Sarah Hokom and Rebecca Cox also had -2 days which moved them both into a tie for fourth place going into the final day of competition. Eveliina Salonen also had a -2 day that pushed her into the lead going into Championship Sunday. It is clear the conditions at Vista are ripe for scoring, and it will be exciting to watch and see how the players perform down the stretch tomorrow. Make plans to tune in and watch the live coverage starting at 10 AM ET. 

In the MPO division, 13 players scored in double digits under par. Justin Bilodeau, Chris Clemons, KJ Nybo, and Josh Anthon all scored -10. Austin Hannum, Adam Hammes, Paul McBeth, Philo Brathwaite, and Scott Withers all carded -11. Grady Shue and JohnE McCray finished the day at -12. To round out the day Jalle Stoor and Eagle McMahon tied for the hot round at -13. The scoring was out there for the MPO division, and many players will be looking to make their mark as they jockey for final position at The Memorial. 

The scoring has been great all week at The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft, don't look for it to let up tomorrow. You can catch the live coverage starting at 10 AM ET for the women and 4:45 PM ET for the men.
