PGA Tour: Seung-Yul Noh takes the lead with a 65 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans

Seung-Yul Noh surged to the top of the leaderboard at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after posting a seven-under 65 in the third round.  Noh has a two-stroke lead at 18-under total.

Despite being only 22-years-old, Noh has been a member of the PGA Tour since 2012.  He had a terrific rookie season, but nearly lost his card in 2013 after missing 13 of 25 cuts.  In 2014, Noh has been a very consistent player making 12 of 14 cuts, and he will have an opportunity to win his first event on Sunday.

Keegan Bradley has become a major factor at the Zurich Classic after firing a 66 on Friday and a 65 on Saturday to claim a spot in the final group at 16-under total.  Bradley went winless in 2013, and is known to be one of the most competitive players on the PGA Tour.  If Noh doesn’t bring his A-game, Bradley will be right there to take the tournament.

Robert Streb is in third place at 15-under total.  Streb has limited status on the PGA Tour, but he has made seven of seven cuts, and may secure his card with a high finish tomorrow.

Second round leader Ben Martin slipped back into a tie for fourth at 14-under total after a lackluster 73.  Martin is tied with Andrew Svoboda and Jeff Overton.

Paul Casey and Charley Hoffman are tied for seventh at 13-under total.
