Jonathan Byrd sits at 5-under-par at the Wells Fargo Championship and in a tie for ninth going into Saturday.
He feels like he can win the tournament because he almost won it before --- back in 2011 when he lost in a playoff to Lucas Glover.
But that was before a wrist injury sidelined him for more than three months in 2013. Since then, the former Clemson All-American and 2002 PGA Rookie of the Year has finished in a tie for second with two top-10s.
"I'm playing well enough and putting well enough," Byrd said. "I hit a lot of good putts today. So I just feel like if I can sharpen it up a little bit, tee-to-green, I got just as good of a chance as anybody."
Byrd got up to 7-under after a three-birdie front nine, but he had three bogeys on the back nine. He hit back-to-back flop shots on Nos. 15 and 16 that resulted in a par on the par-5 15th and a bogey on the 16th.
"They're kind of spots where you want to hit a hero shot, and I didn't have great lies on either one of them to be able to do that," Byrd said.
"I just started to kind of get out of sync on the back nine, just mad (at) a few bad shots... Played great on the front, though."
Clemson Tee-Times: Kyle Stanley went off at 8:36 a.m. on Saturday, playing with Keith Slocum. Ben Martin starts at 9:39 a.m. with Andre Svoboda. Jonathan Byrd has a 12:50 p.m. tee time, with Michael Thompson.
