David, from Sweden, carded a third round +3 over par 73 at the Quicken Loans National tournament, but stayed on top of the leaderboard at -7 under par.

A wire to wire win would be a new experience for David;

“I haven’t had the wire-to-wire scenario in my career, but a lot of great players have won tournaments that way and I would like to do it as well.”

“I’m kind of feeling like I’m up for the challenge.”

Daniel Summerhays is in second place, one shot back at -6 under par, he played a little better, an even par round of 70.

Daniel has had putter trouble, the ball will just not get in the hole;

“I struck the ball extremely well, I’ve had a lot of great looks, so maybe I just need to persuade that ball into the cup a little bit more.”

Spenser Levin fired the round of the day -5 under 65, and it takes him into third position on his own at that score of -5 under, a significant move on moving day, while everyone else struggled.

Spenser had a good day with his putter, and hopes for another good day tomorrow, he would love to chalk up his first PGA Tour win;

“It was the best round I’ve had all year by far. It’s been a tough year, but the putts have been going in this week, which is obviously why I’m playing well.” 

“I’ve had a chance and have never won, so if I don’t, it wouldn’t be anything new.”

“But I’m going to go out there with a different mindset. I’m going to try and make putts and see if I can do it.”
