Canada’s Svensson T3 after round three in Punta CanaWritten by Austin Stanton / Golf Canada
Canadian, Adam Svensson, of Surrey, B.C continued his solid play at the Web.com Tour’s Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship Saturday. He fired a three-under par, 69, and is one shot back of leaders, Kyoung-Hoon Lee, and Rafael Campos.
For the second straight day, Svensson was four-under par after the front nine, thanks to four birdies and no bogeys.
A double bogey on the par-4 15th dropped him to 2-under for the day. He rebounded with a birdie on the par-4 18th to finish the day three-under.
Svensson – who will tee off in the penultimate group tomorrow – is looking for his first career victory on the Web.com Tour. He has two career top-10s, his best result a T9 at the 2016 LECOM Health Challenge.
He told the PGA’s Adam Stanley after his round that he’s happy to be in a chasing position heading into Sunday.
. @WebDotComTour Svensson tells me he’d rather be chasing going into tomorrow rather than following. Enjoys being able to fire at flags on this course.
