McCarthy, who did not have a birdie putt outside of 18 feet, plans to stick to his game plan heading into the final round of his second AJGA event.
“I’m going to go out there and attack the flagsticks,” McCarthy said. “If I hit the fairways and drive the ball well, I’ll be able to keep it steady for the day.”
