Brandt Snedeker is bracing for a long last day at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C.

Snedeker held a 3-stroke lead Saturday when the third round was suspended because of severe weather.

He was 16 under for the tournament with 11 holes left in the round at the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season — and is preparing for the grind of playing 29 holes.

Snedeker says he hopes his adrenalin takes over when he plays the back nine for the final time.

“I’ve got to be really smart about making sure I’m staying hydrated and more than anything else, making sure I don’t have any mental lapses,” Snedeker said. “Kind of the hardest (thing) to do when it’s hot, humid, you’re out there all day. The physical side, we’re used to. Just, you mentally get fatigued and fried make some mistakes. The key for tomorrow — make sure I don’t do that.”

Brian Gay was 13 under through 12 holes, and Trey Mullinax, Keith Mitchell, C.T. Pan and D.A. Points were another stroke back at varying stages of their rounds.

Thirty players were still on the course when play was halted during the mid-afternoon with thunder booming and a threat of lightning.

After a 3-hour, 23-minute delay, organizers chose to hold things up overnight and resume the round at 8 a.m. Sunday.

Kent State graduate Corey Conners and Akron native Harold Varner III each finished their round, shooting a 1 under 69.

Silver Lake native Ryan Armour did not finish his round.


Lizette Salas waited patiently for Sung Hyun Park to make a rare mistake. When the South Korean hit her approach shot into the water on the par-4 16th, Salas capitalized.

She rolled in her birdie putt then watched Park make double bogey — a three-shot swing that gave Salas the lead and the momentum heading into the final round of the Indy Women in Tech Championship. Salas closed out her 8-under 64 with a birdie on No. 18 to reach 21 under — 2 shots ahead of Park and Amy Yang.

European Tour

Paul Waring of England and Thomas Aiken of South Africa share the lead, 3 shots clear of their rivals, after the third round of the Nordea Masters on the European Tour in Sweden.

Waring was tied for first place with Scott Jamieson after the second round and shot a 1-under 69.
