Sneds kept his three shot lead at the Safeway Open with a third round -3 under par 69, giving him a tournament total of -16 under after the 54 holes completed;
“I’m really proud of the way I stepped up there and hit some quality shots when I needed to.”
“I made some birdies and gave me a little bit of cushion for tomorrow, which will be really important because tomorrow’s supposed to be tougher than today, so every shot is really important coming down the stretch.”
“It was a tough day, the wind kicked up the last 12 or 13 holes.”
“I just did a great job of staying patient knowing the last three holes were birdies holes.”
Kevin Tway has second place those three shots back at -13 following his bogey free third round -4 under 68;
“It was a tough day, the wind picked up.”
“I kept the ball in play nicely. I made a nice save on fourteen and that was my only real bad shot.”
Third place belongs to Sungjae Im, South Korea, who carded -3 under 69 for a total of -12 under par.
