Saturday on the PGA Tour is known as “Moving Day” as the golfers make a push to move up on the leaderboard in order to set up a potential final push on Sunday. Then again, some of the players use everything in their power to simply make the cut and end up moving the wrong way on the leaderboard.
Moving Day at the Valspar Championship at the Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course saw Patrick Cantlay move up six spots into second place with his second consecutive 66. He received the last sponsor’s exemption into the Valspar Championship and now he will be playing in the final group on Sunday along with Adam Hadwin.

Defending champion Charl Schwartzel moved up 25 spots into a tie for 7th after a third round 67.
J.J. Henry, who has 1996 PGA Championship winner Mark Brooks on his bag, this week, moved up 15 spots into a tie with Henrik Stenson for fifth place.
“He’s kind of my 15th club this week,” Henry said on tampabay.com. “He always caddies for me once or twice a year. To have a good buddy come out here and help says a lot. There’s probably nobody with more experience this week than me and Mark.”
On the opposite end of Moving Day, James Hahn dropped 41 spots into a tie for 49th with a third round 77.
