PGA Tour: Greg Chalmers charges up the leaderboard at the HP Byron Nelson

Greg Chalmers understands that Saturday is moving day on the PGA Tour.  He is currently three-under through seven holes in the third round and tied for ninth place at five-under total.  A few more birdies, and Chalmers will be tied with Brendon Todd for the lead.

Chalmers has put together a nice career on the PGA Tour.  The two-time winner has been a member of the Tour since 1998, and will have the opportunity to earn full status for next season with a high finish at the HP Byron Nelson.  Chalmers is known as an exceptionally hard worker who will spend hours on the range to make sure his game is ready for tournament play.

Every week on the PGA Tour someone new puts together an exciting weekend charge.  At the RBC Heritage, Matt Kuchar chipped in from the bunker on 18 to shoot a 64 on Sunday, and clip Luke Donald by one-stroke for the win.  Last week, Jim Furyk almost won The Players with a Sunday 66.

Chalmers birdied the first hole and added birdies on four, five, and six, but bogeyed the seventh hole to move 16 spots up the leaderboard.  If he can shoot in the low-60s, he will be in the mix on Sunday, and have the potential to win his third event on Tour.
