It’s Nick Watney who will take the lead into the final round of The Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.
Nick made birdie on the final hole to take a one shot lead going into the final round of The Wyndham Championship on Saturday. He carded -5 under par 65 to post a 54 hole total of -14 under par, and said he had been trying to keep it simple, adding that the birdie on 18 was a bonus;
“I’ve been trying to keep it pretty simple, a lot of fairways and greens, and I’ve been able to do that so far. I’m super excited about going into tomorrow with the lead.”
“I’m looking forward to everything that comes with it, all the emotions and wanting to do well and whatnot. Learning how to handle that is a big thing, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
“It’s a hard hole as it is, and they put the pin on that back right little knob, it’s a bonus and I’m very happy with it.”
“I assume that when I tee off, I probably won’t be in the lead or tied for the lead, so it’s not like I’m protecting anything tomorrow. Just more of the same.”
Brad Fritsch also scored a -5 under par 65 third round, which gave him second place on his own at -13 under par. Canadian Brad jokingly asked the officials on the first tee to introduce him as a North Carolinian, hoping to get more support from the crowd;
“Just so people would know and get a little focus off Webb and a little onto me.”
“Staying patient and not freaking out over a bogey, not freaking out over a missed fairway and not getting too aggressive, I think just that, really.”
Freddie Jacobson and Heath Slocum share the third position, both at -12 under par, Freddie with -4 under par 66, and Heath with -2 under par 68.
Best round of the day went to Andres Romero, who carded a -6 under par 64, and in the Aces department Kevin Foley and David Toms each had holes-in-one. Kevin on the par-3, 12th and David achieved the same result on the par-3 seventh.
This tournament is wide open, with no less than nine players within three strokes of the lead, a low round tomorrow will win this trophy.
One of the nine is Brandt Snedeker, currently on -11 under par, who said he will be going for it;
“You know what you’re going to have to do. You have to go out there and shoot good tomorrow. The great mentality, go out there and be aggressive and don’t hold back. Give it everything you’ve got.”
