Sacramento, CA native Spencer Levin is looking for his first career PGA Tour victory of his young career, taking a comfortable lead into the final round at TPC Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open. But after a bit of a shaky start, Levin has seen his lead shrink quite a bit early in the round, leaving it wide open down the stretch on Super Bowl Sunday.
Levin has two bogies already on his front nine, while both Ben Crane and Kyle Stanley find themselves 3-under for the day and now only four shots behind Levin along with John Huh with all of them with about nine holes left to play.
As for fan favorite Phil Mickelson, he finds himself three-over for the day so far, falling out of contention at 5-under par for the week, tied for 28th overall.
Levin’s never been in this position on the PGA tour, and with the raucous crowds at TPC Scottsdale this Sunday, the pressure will certainly be high. Let’s see how he copes with it down the stretch.
