TRUCKEE, Calif. — Chez Reavie doubled his lead to six points Saturday in the Barracuda Championship, the PGA Tour’s lone modified Stableford scoring event.
A day after a 19-point round, the 40-year-old Reavie scored nine points — making five birdies and a bogey — to reach 37 points on Tahoe Mountain Club’s Old Greenwood layout.
Players get five points for eagle and two for birdie. A point is deducted for bogey and three taken away for double bogey or worse.
Martin Laird of Scotland was second. He birdied the last three holes in a 13-point round.
Reavie is trying to win for the third time on the PGA Tour, following the 2008 Canadian Open and 2019 Travelers Championship.
Reavie birdied the par-5 sixth and par-3 seventh on the front nine. He added birdies on the par-4 11th, par-5 12th and par-4 14th, before dropping a point on the par-3 15th with his lone bogey in three rounds.
The event is co-sanctioned by the European tour.
