Round three scores: Kevin Chappell -8; Branden Grace, John Huh -7; Ryan Palmer, Martin Laird, Tony Finau and four others -6.

On a brutal day of scoring at TPC San Antonio, it was Kevin Chappell who narrowly took the lead heading into the final round.

Anything under par was a terrific score, and Chappell managed to sign for a round of 71 and head into Sunday looking for a well overdue first victory on the PGA Tour.

But with the leaderboard incredibly bunched up, he will face tough opposition, particularly from wind–specialist Branden Grace who lurks just one shot behind.

The South African posted an impressive round of two–under–par, and will fancy his chances of doubling his tally on the PGA Tour in conditions that suit his game perfectly.

“It felt like a 60! I played well. I putted really well. I had to stay patient,” Grace said after his round.

“You just have to give yourself chances. You have to stay patient. Tomorrow, try and hit greens and give yourself chances. The last time I won out here was from behind.”

Texas–native Ryan Palmer is also right in contention after securing the round of the day with a 68. The three–time PGA Tour winner will no doubt have the backing of the home crowd, and may prove to be the man to beat, with a proven record around this course with top–six finishes in both of the last two years.

Scotland’s Martin Laird, who is a past champion here back in 2013, leads the British hopes on –6 after Graeme McDowell laboured to a round of 76, leaving him 10 shots behind alongside England’s Andrew ‘BEEF’ Johnston.
