Alex and Matt Fitzpatrick had one of the lowest scores of the day during the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, but even so, the elder Fitzpatrick said he doesn't "understand the scoring" at the PGA Tour's team event.
The Fitzpatrick brothers made eleven birdies and one bogey en route to a 10-under 62 during Saturday's round of four-ball. They were tied for seventh.
However, while speaking to media afterwards, Matt, 28, admitted he didn't quite understand what kind of scores to expect at the team event when asked where he thought they'd be by the end of the day.
"This is the first time I've played this tournament, so scoring is kind of a little -- yeah, I really don't understand the scoring," said Matt. "I was amazed at how bunched it is. The average win score is 25-under. We're at 21. So shoot 4-under tomorrow, then that's a decent effort."
While Matt, who won last week's RBC Heritage, said he wants to win every week, much more is on the line for younger brother, Alex.
The 24-year-old turned professional just last summer after an impressive amateur career and with a win this week in Louisiana, he would earn automatic PGA Tour status.
However, Matt said he isn't too worried about Alex earning the highly coveted PGA Tour membership this week.
Matt told reporters after Saturday's round:
After three rounds, the Fitzpatrick brother's had a tournament total of 21-under par and were five shots back of the leaders.
