PGA Tour: Brandt Schneider Takes Four-Way Lead to Final Round

Brandt Schneider during three rounds of the 2022 Valero Texas Open

Valero joins Brandt Schneider and Beau Hosler JJ Span and Dylan Fritelli after the third round of the Texas Open on Saturday.

Both American Schneider and Hosler finished the round at 5-under 67 to advance to the leaderboards, and occupied a share of the lead at 10-under.

On the 18th a bogey colleague wasted a chance to take the full lead of the American spawn, while a 70 from Fritley was enough to keep the momentum going for South Africa.

Another shot from Scott Stallings by Matt Kutcher backed the group ahead of just one.

Meanwhile, England’s Aaron Rye is still looking for seven under-nine players.

Like Spoon, a final-hole bogie puts Scott Stallings out of the lead. He also made 65 shots and nine-under shots. At 18, Matt Kutcher’s bogey dropped him to eight-under after an equal-par round.

Span birdied four of his five holes to take a one-shot lead on the 18th. At 17 he drove the green at 303-yard par-four and made about 19-foot eagles. However, he pushes his T-shot into the tree at 18, punches out, then falls short of the current that protects the final green. He finished with a 22-foot putt that he missed.

“If you say to me this Tuesday, ‘Hey, you’re going to be tied for Sunday’s lead,’ I’ll accept it,” Span said. “Yeah, boogie in the last hole, but I think it could have been worse. So I’m not too upset about it. “

Second-round leader Ryan Palmer did not have a boogie on Friday but did not have a birdie on Saturday and dropped to 21st place with a five-over 77.

In a bogie-free round, Snecker was four-under at the back. He is looking for his first win since 2018. This will be his 10th tour win.

“I’ve been working hard at it, probably as hard as my career has been,” Snecker said. “I just didn’t have any success. And the only way you can fix that is to go there and do it, go there and keep practicing and keep grinding, which is what I’m doing. And when you get them, you have to enjoy the challenge. “

Spaun and Hossler are each looking to win their first tour and Frittelli won at the 2019 John Deere Classic.

Maverick McNealy matched 65 in the best round of the day, and he was three shots behind Charles Howell III (72), C. U. Kim (68), Danny McCarthy (68), Troy Merritt (69), Aaron Rye (68). , Brendon Todd (72) and Gary Woodland (72).

Hosler had a three-straight birdie starting from the 14th when all his approach shots ended less than 10 feet from the hole. A professional since 2016 after playing at the University of Texas, Hosler has earned career-best second place at the 2018 Houston Open and is third at Pebble Beach this year.

“I went to college and I’m an hour and 10 minutes away from here,” Hosler said. “But if I start thinking about it, I’m in big trouble. So I’m going to go out and play some golf tomorrow and I hope that’s enough. “

The 37-year-old Stallings, a three-time winner on the tour, started the day in the top 20 and climbed to the top of the rankings as the 36-foot birdie dropped to eighth place to go seven-under. It was his third birdie of the day, and two more at 14 and 15 gave him a share of the lead.

“Birdie, an eight-year-old birdie, Ben Martin was on my team and I had a putt right next to me that left his lips,” Stallings said. “I had a good visual, but still lucky.”

A victory after the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open will qualify him for the Masters in his first and next week. She has not played in Augusta since Miss Cut in 2014.

Earlier in the week, on Friday, Royal Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama withdrew after nine holes in the second round due to a neck injury.

The winner of this tournament will get a berth in next week’s Masters if they have not already qualified.
