Sneds carded a final round -5 under par 65 to win the Wyndham Championship with a -21 under total, a three shot winning margin;

“It means the world to me; I’m really enjoying this moment right now.”

“I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was. I still got a lot of great golf in me and I’m excited about the FedEx Cup Playoffs.”

“I’ve done this before, I’ve won that thing, I can’t wait to try to make a run at Atlanta and try to win the FedEx Cup Playoffs because I’m playing great.”

Tied in second place at -18 under were C.T. Pan, Taipei, -4 under 66 today and Webb Simpson, USA, another former winner here, with a fantastic final round -8 under 62.

Sergio Garcia the 10-time PGA Tour winner eventually fell short of making the FedEx Cup Playoffs by finishing No. 128 in the points race. Now, there are only 10 golfers who have made the playoffs every year.

Sneds has completed 7 holes of his third round, for -2 under, and still leads the Wyndham Championship with a total of -16 under par, a three shot advantage over the field;

“If I get to 22 under par, I think it’s hard for other guys to get there.”

“I’m not saying it can’t happen, but that number seems to hold up here pretty well.”

“Once you post a number here, it rarely stays because there’s so many opportunities the last four, five holes.”

“So I think it’s a huge advantage being in the lead or in the last group so that you know what you have to do and kind of set a marker for what needs to be done.”

“So par, if it was going to be a tough day tomorrow. It would be a totally different scenario where you’d want to post a score early and just see if it holds up.”

“Tomorrow, I think you want as many holes as possible.”

Brian Gay has second place to himself at -12 under, he is -6 under for twelve holes today;

 “I played great yesterday and continued more of the same today, unfortunate to get called in.”

“I didn’t play particularly well at the PGA last week, so I kind of made the decision to come here and just keep playing going into the Playoffs and hopefully get some more points.”

Tied in third place at -12 under par are;  Trey Mullinax, -4 under through 12 holes today, Keith Mitchell, -3 under through 8 and D.A. Points even par for his six completed third round holes, these three from the USA. They are joined  by C.T. Pan from Taipei, with his -1 under after seven holes.

Brandt joined the exclusive 59 club with a Wyndham Championship first round of -11 under par;

“I better be smiling, I don’t do this every day.”

“To know what you’re trying to do and step up and have a twenty footer and know what it means, I was very aware of what was going on, and to knock that putt in was really special.”

“To know I’m a part of a small club on TOUR and not very many people have done this, really cool feeling right now.”

Ryan Moore and John Oda share second place, four shots back at -7 under after their opening rounds of 63.

Ryan tried to cut the gap;

“You see a round like Snedeker’s and maybe kind of encourage you there’s birdies out there, that the course is playing scorable and there’s rounds to be had.”

“I kind of took that mindset of, well, better get out there and make some birdies if you don’t want to be 10, 11 shots behind by the end of this day.”

“Like, let’s try and close that gap a little bit.”

Seven players are then tied in fourth place at -7 under par, but as the Sedgefield Country Club course is giving up a host of birdies Sneds must easily walk away with this title.

Henrik took hold of the Wyndham Championship shooting a third round -4 under par 66, to give him a tournament total of -16 under par, and will take a one shot advantage into the final round tomorrow. He said good putting was the key;

“I feel like I’ve been putting nicely this week.”

“I’ve been reading greens good. I’m seeing the lines nicely. When I get it there, I seem to be making a lot of putts.”

“There’s been a couple of swings that haven’t been up to satisfaction. When you finish strong and you’re in contention, you feel good.”

“I’m just going to try to keep on playing the same way or even better.”

“I hit a lot of 2-irons, 4-woods and I’m going to try to be aggressive with those clubs.”

“A lot of players are going to have a chance tomorrow. I’m just happy to be one of them.”

Webb Simpson, -2 under 68 today,  Kevin Na, -5 under 65, and Ollie Schniederjans, -4 under 66, are all tied in second place at -15 under par, and Henrik will know these USA boys are right behind him, and they will not be giving up. As Webb said;

“All in all, still happy, I’m right there.”

Jason Kokrak shot the low round of the day -7 under 63, so the low rounds are still achievable out there, tomorrow should be exciting.

Ryan shot -9 under 61, and Webb -6 under 64 to top the Wyndham Championship leaderboard at -13 under par for the two rounds, and lead by just one shot.

Webb has not won on Tour since 2014, and wants to keep making birdies;

“Keep making birdies, stay aggressive and know that there’s plenty of good golfers behind me.”

 “I got to keep the hammer down.”

Ryan wants to qualify for the post-season, but only the top 125 are eligible to tee it up next week. Ryan is currently at 187 on that list;

“Could turn your life around.”

“I had some goals at the beginning of the week. I knew where I stood and, you know, right now the goals are attainable.”

Henrik Stenson, from Sweden is in third place at -12 under par he carded a second round -4 under 66, and says he has the game plan to win;

“The game plan is there, I got the set-up in the bag to give me those numbers off the tee that we need and it’s just about going out there and playing, continue making birdies and giving myself birdie chances.”

“It’s a low scoring golf course, keep it going.”

It is moving day tomorrow, and it will be interesting to see if anyone can separate themselves from the field, and take an advantage into the final round Sunday.

Matt equaled the tournament record low round of -9 under par bogey free 61 to lead the Wyndham Championship by just one point, in a low scoring first round at Sedgefield Country Club;

“I played good, and have been playing good for a while, so it’s just nice to see it come together.”

“I have a high regard for my talent. Like, I know I’m as talented as anyone out here,  maybe like five guys are more talented than me, so I couldn’t let myself quit,”

“There were a lot of low points, though. That’s life. Just everything that I’ve been through, I’ve brought on myself.”

“So I don’t need any sympathy or anything. It’s just the way my path has gone so far in the last couple years.”

Henrik Stenson, from Sweden, was also bogey free, he holds second place with his opening round of -8 under 62;

“I hit a lot of good shots out there.”

“There were plenty of birdies, so it was a good day.”

Webb SimpsonCameron Smith, Vaughn Taylor, Tim Wilkinson, Harold Varner III, Brian Campbell and Sam Saunders all share third place at -7 under par.

Si Woo carded a final round -3 under par 67 to claim the Wyndham Championship title with a -21 under par score, which equaled the tournament low record;

“I feel confidence so I don’t have any fear to attacking the pin.”

“Before this tournament I was tough to gain that top 30 but right now I can get in so I’m very happy about that and want to get through it.”

A back in form Luke Donald was second, a last round -3 under par 67 giving him a tournament total of -16 under par, and he congratulated Si Woo on his victory and also was excited to jump from 99th to 48th in the FedExCup rankings;

“It’s never easy leading from the front but he seems to cope with it extremely well.”

“I didn’t realize my jump was going to be that extreme, obviously I can play with a little bit more freedom and go out there and hopefully keep playing the way I played this week.”

“I played pretty solidly today, I didn’t quite get it in the fairway quite enough to be able to attack enough pins and really put some pressure own Si.”

“He looked like he was very much in control of his game and he was going to be a hard man to catch. Lot of positives from this week and good time heading into the Playoffs to find in form.”

Sharing third place at -15 under par were Hideki Matsuyama and Brandt Snedeker, both -3 under 67 today.

Brandt summed his tournament;

“I’m rolling the ball fantastic, playing some great golf.”

“Got to find the one thing that kind of ties it all together. I can do it on the range occasionally.”

“On the golf course I do it quite a little bit every once in a while, or one or two will sneak in.”

“I wasn’t worried about second, I was trying to put some pressure on him.”

“Got to get those out of there before next week. Tough golf course next week. Make sure I’m hitting on all cylinders to handle Bethpage.”

“Got to think your way around the course, pull from the great finish I had four years ago, go up with some confidence and try the recreate it.”

“I got to go up there and play well, I need to be in the top five heading to Atlanta. I got three solid weeks to get that done.”
