Quick hits from Saturday at Greenbrier Classic

Top quote – Davis Love III

“If I had putted a little bit better today, I’d be right in it,” Love III told CBS Sports after a round of 68.

Best round – Robert Streb

Streb canned a 91-foot birdie putt on the opening hole, then added four more birdies and an eagle for a 5-under-par 65. The 30-year-old sits in solo second place at 12-under par for the tournament, two strokes back of Sebastian Munoz.

Shot of the day – Streb at No. 12

Streb found the deep rough off the tee at the par-5 12th, but gashed his 231-yard approach with a hybrid onto the green, setting up an easy eagle putt.
