Jonathan Brightwell has his game dialed in for Snee Farm Country Club.

The rising junior at UNC Greensboro posted his third consecutive round of 68 Friday, and with a 54-hole total of 204 will take a three-shot lead over Xavier's Garrett Wood into the final round of the Rice Planters Amateur golf tournament.

Wood, who shared the first- and second-round lead with Brightwell, managed to shake off an early triple bogey to shoot a 1-under 71 and is at 207. Notre Dame rising junior Davis Lamb is third after a 2-under 70 gave him a 209 total.

Tied for fourth at 211 are Gen Nagai (Seton Hall), Jack Murdoch (Australia) and William Holcomb V (Sam Houston State).

Brightwell, who helped UNC Greensboro to its first Southern Conference championship and an NCAA berth this spring, had nines of 34-34 for the third straight day. He birdied 1, 6 and 8 with a bogey on the front nine. His back nine was highlighted by an eagle-3 on the 16th hole, the second time in three rounds for Brightwell, along with birdies on 13 and 18 and bogeys on 12 and 15.

Wood, a rising sophomore at Xavier, had to overcome a difficult start, making a triple-bogey 8 on the second hole. He birdied 6, 8 and 9 along with a bogey on 7 for a 37 on the front nine. He eagled the par-5 13th hole on the back nine to go along with eight pars for a 34.

Lamb was even par on the front nine with a bogey on 8 and birdie on 9. He reeled off three birdies over the first four holes on the back nine and bogeyed 17 for a back-nine 34.

It took a score of 222, 6 over par, to make the cut for the final round. Saturday's tee times begin at 8 a.m. with Brightwell, Wood and Lamb starting at 11:10 a.m.
