Quinney clings to lead, many close

In true Cinderella fashion, TOUR rookie Jeff Quinney arrives at the summit of golfing talent and flourishes. Yes, he may be a rookie. But three consecutive top 15 finishes means something. He's in it to win it.

Quinney goes into Sunday with a two stroke lead over Aussie Aaron Baddeley. Can Quinney perform in the clutch? At the Bob Hope, needing a miracle at 17 and 18 to make it into the playoff, Quinney aced the 17th with 35 mph winds gusting. He stands currently at 16 under after a mediocre three under round on Saturday with Badds hot on the trail.

Badds isn't new to the game either. One of Australia's top young stars, Badds picked up his first win at the Verizon Heritage last season on Easter Sunday. Many felt Badds had never fulfilled his great potential taking several years to pick up his first win in the United States. Of course, it doesn't look like he's willing to give up on this opportunity after he fired a 7 under Saturday round to take claim of second place.

Bart Bryant and Brett Quigley are in third at 13 under. John Rollins, winner of the Bob Hope, and Ryder Cupper Vaughn Taylor are tied for fourth at 14 under par.
According to The Golf Channel, 10 players have a chance to win tomorrow. Quinney has about a 48% chance in the Win Zone stat as Badds enters Sunday with a 23% chance. The lowest on the leaderboard with a chance under this statistic is former Disney winner Lucas Glover who enters Sunday in 20th.
