Donald Ducks Nothing

Luke Donald rebounded from his poor outing on Friday to a tie for the lead at the Honda Classic, carding a 3rd round score of 66. He made 4 birdies on the day including 2 at the Bear Trap on hole #s 16 & 17. Much like his opening round, Donald went bogey-less.

Donald shares the lead with Australian Matt Jones and Veteran tour player Mark Calcavecchia, who likes the proximity of the tournament to his house.

"It'd be pretty special to win a tour event three miles from your driveway," said Calcavecchia, who is no stranger to the tournament or the course. A two-time Honda Classic champion (1987, 1998) and part-time resident of Palm Beach Gardens, the 48 year-old has played relatively flawless golf, with all 3 of his rounds coming in at Even-par or better.

Matt Jones has made the cut in all 6 events he’s entered this season. After grinding it out on the Nationwide Tour, he was able to finish 7th on the Nationwide Money List and automatically gained his PGA Tour card.

Jones believes he’s ready to succeed.

“I might not have been ready to come out here two, three years ago. It might have been hurtful if I had," Jones said. "I think playing the Nationwide Tour was the best thing that could have happened."

Should Jones win the Honda, he may have a new ‘best thing’.
