For a kid that has been on tour for just a short time, Aaron Wise is proving his worth on the PGA Tour. Today he took a windy afternoon and proved that he is certainly in contention for the title tomorrow with Marc Leishman.
Leishman commented that he needed to shoot a low score tomorrow to win this tournament.
“Nothing is a given, strange things happen on Sunday’s in golf tournaments. We have to go out and shoot a -4 under if someone makes a good run at 6 or 7 under tomorrow, so I have to play a strong round to beat Aaron,” said Leishman.
With the course playing quite a bit tougher today than it did earlier in the week, Aaron Wise’s lead is going to be tough to hold and he knows it.
Wise, who is just 21, finished T-2 at the Wells Fargo Championship his last time out and is once again proving he’s comfortable when the pressure is on.
Despite the pressure Leishman has on him to play well tomorrow he seemed a bit lighthearted when he called Wise a pretty good golfer.
” I think I was in High School when he was born,” ha ha.. so yea considering that, he is a pretty good golfer.
Tomorrow’s final round of the Byron Nelson Classic calls for a little cooler temperatures, but expect the course to play similar as it did today with some chances for the players in that final group to make a push against both players.
