David Bradshaw of the U.S. held steady in a downpour and blustery winds yesterday to shoot a 1-under 71 to extend his lead to 11 shots heading into the final round of PGA Tour Canada’s British Columbia Q-School.
The ferocious conditions made the Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community track a beast of a test and just a half dozen players broke 70.
Bradshaw managed three birdies and two bogeys to add one shot to his overnight lead and post 18-under through 54 holes. Amateur Ryan McCormick is second at 7-under after firing a 5-under 67, which was best round of the day.
Bradshaw said he felt good about his round despite shooting nine shots higher than the day before, when he carded a course record 62 at Crown Isle.
Temperatures hovered around 12C, with winds gusting to 20 km/h and approximately 20 mm of rain falling through the day. The course averaged 75.35 strokes yesterday after averaging just 73.74 during the first two rounds.
