Kevin Na and Brendon de Jonge

Bogey: Kevin Na/Brendon de Jonge

Hang on and give yourself a chance come Sunday. That had to going through the minds of these guys as they saw their names on the leader board in the third round, both within shouting distance of leader Martin Kaymer, while playing the back nine at Pinehurst. Turned out, it was only wishful thinking. Two under o the day through 10 holes, De Jonge made three bogeys and a double in a five-hole stretch to shoot a 73 and fall nine back. Na's crash was similarly bumpy: double bogeys on the 14th and 16th holes left him with a 73 and a eight-shot deficit . . . and not much chance come Sunday. -- R.H.
