Defending champion Van Pelt had four birdies in the first six holes, then five in a row from the eighth. After turning in 29 on the par-71 Mines Resort and Golf Club course, he had five birdies on the back nine and only needed one more birdie to join an elite club.

Garrigus, who led by two strokes coming into the weekend, had 69 on Saturday for a total of 197, while fellow American Chris Kirk carded a 63 to move to 15-under, one clear of Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge and South Africa's Jbe Kruger.
