American Bryson DeChambeau believes his experience on the PGA Tour will pay dividends when he plays in the final round of the 3M Open on Sunday.
The world number eight will start the final round in Blaine with a share of the lead after he finished with a disappointing round of 70.
DeChambeau had been in front but his one-under par round allowed Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa to move level.
Wolff’s sensational 62 saw him climb up 34 places on the leaderboard and he showed no signs of nerves on only his third pro start.
Morikawa is also just starting out with this week’s tournament only the fourth of his career and the pair’s lack of experience should stand out, according to DeChambeau.
He told the PGA Tour official website: “All I know is there’s going to be some pressure. I won a couple of times out here. I know how to get it done.
Doesn’t mean I’m going to get it done tomorrow – just means that I know what to do, especially when I’m firing on all cylinders.”
DeChambeau remains the 3.60 favourite to lift the trophy as he tries to move further up the world rankings.
The 25-year-old has already secured five wins on the PGA Tour and he comes into the event on the back of a top-10 finish at the Travelers Championship.
Wyndham Clark and Adam Hadwin are still in contention in a share of fourth and they are just one shot behind the leading trio. Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama made his move on Saturday and he is tied sixth and punters can back him at odds of 8.00 to win this weekend.
