Alexis Anghert of France shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday at Oak Valley Golf Club to take a one shot lead into the final round of PGA Tour Canada’s California Qualifying Tournament.

The 26-year-old Quebec City resident will take a one shot advantage over England’s Greg Eason into the final round of the 72-hole competition that will see 18 players earn exempt status on PGA Tour Canada for 2014, with the rest of the top 40 plus ties earning conditional status.

The cut-off through 54 holes for exempt status stands at 4-under par, while the number for conditional status stands at even par.

Anghert, who moved to Quebec to play at Laval University, is looking to join former Rouge et Or teammate Max Gilbert, who won the Tour Championship of Canada presented by Freedom 55 Financial last season.

Sonny Michaud, another Laval grad who helped the team win the Golf Canada University/College Championship in 2012, shot a 2-under 70 to move into a tie for 40th spot. He’s in position to earn conditional status for 2014.

Anghert and Eason will play in the final threesome today along with Seth Fair of the U.S., who shot a 3-under 69 to sit 10-under overall.

Anghert’s 66 was tied for the lowest round of the day with American Joe Doramus, who moved up 31 spots into a tie for 10th.

Michaud and Justin Kim of Hamilton, who shot a 2-over 74 to tie for 32nd at 1-under total, lead the Canadian contingent of players in position to earn PGA Tour Canada status for this year.
