This week is going to be a huge thing for Webb Simpson

Brandt Snekeder and Webb Simpson will be playing for the crowds today at the Wyndham Championship today at 1.45p.m Sunday for the Final Round at the Sedgefield Country Club.

These two players have too much in common. They are former champions and absolute favorites for the crowds. They are even going to be starting the match three shots behind Nick Watney who is the third round leader. All the eyes from the gallery are expected to be upon them and their every move in the match. Both Simpson and Snekeder have made their career’s first victories here at Sedgefield Country Club. Snekeder won in 2007 and Simpson in 2011.

Today, each of them shot a 4 under 66 and when simpson needed a way out of the sand trap, he made a tricky putt to finish the third round. When the putt dropped, he was so elated that he pumped his fist. Simpson says that it was his goal to play good enough today so that he gets a fair chance on Sunday. He added that they had to hit an elevated space on the top level and had 200 yards towards the downhill. He is happy and relieved that he could get that placement out of his way and hopes that these will be more accessible on Sunday.

Snekeder pulled in a tie with the leader on the 15thhole but shot a 4 under 31 on the first nine. His drive fell apart at the 18th point when it landed four places away from the cart path into the woods.

Snekeder says that he is very disappointed at the stroke and how he played because he had been playing really well. He says that he knows what he has to do on Sunday after learning from this game.
