Lahiri opened with a neat birdie on first but gave that gain away with a bogey on Par-3 sixth and turned in even. On the back nine he bogeyed the 15th but made up for that at 16th. In the third round, when there was wind going up to 28 miles per hour, Lahiri did not give himself too many opportunities inside 10 feet.
Hodges and Barjon had the advantage of a late tee time as they missed a bit of the wind and had decent conditions at least on the back nine.
Tom Hoge, seeking his first career PGA TOUR title in his 201st start, is third at 17-under after 68.
