Kiwi golfer Danny Lee has some work to do, if he is to tee it up at this year's US Masters in Augusta next week.
Lee needs a victory at this week's Valero Texas Open to make the field for the prestigious tournament in Georgia.
He carded a third-round six-under-par 66 to sit in a tie for seventh - five shots behind the leader - with a round remaining.
Korea's Si Woo Kim sits at the top of the leaderboard, one shot ahead of Canadian Corey Conners. Both are staring down the barrel of a shot at the illustrious green jacket.
Lee's round saw the Rotorua Boys' High School old boy make six birdies, two bogeys and an eagle.
The 28-year-old hasn't qualified for the Masters since 2016, when he finished in a tie for 17th.
On the LPGA tour, Kiwi number one Lydia Ko has faded out of the picture at the first Major of the year in California.
She carded a third-round two-over-par 74 to sit in a tie for 47th at three-over-par for the tournament - 11 shots behind leader Jin Young Ko.
