Rico Hoey of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., shot an 8-under 62 on Saturday at Highland Country Club in London, Ont., to take the third-round lead at the Freedom 55 Financial Championship.
Hoey goes into the final round with a three-stroke lead over fellow Californians Cody Blick and Brett Lederer and Georgia’s Greyson Sigg.
For Hoey, one last chance at victory on Sunday means the opportunity to move inside the top five on the Order of Merit and earn Web.com Tour status for 2018.
“We have nothing to lose out here. We know we have to play well in order to squeeze inside the top 10 or top five, so we don’t need to add any unnecessary pressure. We’re just having a good time, and things will fall into place,” he said.
Vancouver’s Ryan Williams shot a 63 on Saturday and is tied for fifth at 12 under after three rounds. He leads all Canadians with one round to go.
Jared du Toit of Kimberley, B.C., is 11th at 10 under after he shot a third round 67.
