Singh has a three-round total of 205. Still on the course, Aaron Baddeley is leading at 10-under.

He's through hole No. 16. Tied for second, one shot back, are Fred Couples and Kevin Na. Na is on the 18th hole, Couples is playing the 16th.

The round of the day belongs to Harrison Frazar who shot a six-under 65 and is now tied for eighth place at five-under for the tournament.
