Russell Henley two strokes off lead after reaching goal with 63

When Russell Henley teed off for his third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, he did so with a number in mind.

His goal? Finish well enough that he was in double digits entering Sunday’s final round at TPC Summerlin.

The former University of Georgia star did it, getting to 13 under par after an 8-under 63 Saturday, the day’s best round. Henley is two shots behind leader Lucas Glover.

“I was thinking double digits, but you really can’t do that in golf,” Henley said. “It seems like whenever you go low, it’s when you least expect it.”

Henley, 27, said his biggest challenge playing TPC Summerlin is club selection.
