Another strong round in the 3rd round by Akshay Bhatia (-6) who looks like the real deal given his success at this age. Anirban (-5) also played well again and hopefully is getting back his form.

18 year old Akshay Bhatia having a top 10 finish in a PGA tour event is quite commendable. Looks like he has a very bright future in front of him given his storied junior career.

23 year old Indian American Sahith Theegala also had a very solid result. He was the 2020 best collegiate player and the best collegiate players often end up as among the best in the world such as recent collegiate best players Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas. He could easily be a PGA tour regular soon.

Good to see Anirban play well after nearly a year. Hopefully, this will be a rebound year for him after a relatively poor last year.
