The American Keegan Bradley took the lead in the Wells Fargo Championship after the Australian Jason Day, who had been the best in the first two days of this tournament, collapsed this Saturday with a very weak performance.
Bradley is -8 overall after delivering Saturday’s best card (67 shots, 3 under par).

In the absence of the day on Sunday, Bradley takes two shots ahead of his compatriot Max Homa (-6 in total) and four to fellow American James Hahn and the Indian Anirban Lahiri (both with -4 after three days).
On a Saturday marked by bad weather at the TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm (Maryland, USA), Day, who started the third day three shots ahead of Homa, collapsed with a card of 79 shots (+9 ) which left him seven strokes behind the leader (-1 in total).
With -1 in total is also the Colombian Jhonattan Vegas, the best of the Hispanics in the tournament after a +2 on the third day.

Sergio García has a +2 in total while the Mexican Abraham Ancer and the Colombian Camilo Villegas will start Sunday with +3.
García has been one of the great protagonists of the tournament due to his anger on Thursday due to a controversial decision by the referees when he was trying to find a ball (the organization later admitted that the Spaniard was right in his complaints).
“I can’t wait to leave this tour (…). Just a couple more weeks and I won’t have to deal with you anymore,” said a very upset Garcia in what some voices within golf have interpreted as support for a initiative of Saudi Arabia to create a tour that competes with the PGA.
Jason Day first entered the world top ten in June 2011, finishing ninth after taking second place at the US Open. In February 2014, he won his first WGC title, the Match Play World Championship.
