Thats never going to happen. But if he can hold on for 18 more holes at the Air Canada Championship, Edwards can achieve a secondary dream ' that of becoming a PGA Tour winner.
For the third straight day, Edwards is at the top of the leaderboard in Surrey, BC. The 39-year-old shot a third-round 3-under-par 68 to move to 13-under for the tournament, three shots clear of his nearest opponent.
'It's a nice feeling, I could get used to this,'' said Edwards, who is holding his first ever 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour. ``I feel good about what I'm doing, but I'm surprised I didn't get in the way of myself, which I have a tendency to do.''
Grant Waite, last years runner-up, is in solo second place at 10-under following a 65. Fred Funk (67) and David Gossett (69) are tied for third place at 9-under.
Edwards first joined the PGA Tour in 1989. He recorded his career best finish in 1992, a tie for second in the B.C. Open.
Its been a bumpy road for the Texan. Hes only finished inside the top-100 on the money list twice. However, one of those years came last season, when Edwards collected a pair of top-5s to end the year 73rd in earnings.
This year, Edwards tied for fifth in the Honda Classic and stands 99th on the money list.
Saturday, Edwards completed his second straight bogey-free round. He found some trouble on the par-4 finishing hole, when his approach shot just cleared the lake guarding the green.
Edward pitched his third shot to eight feet, and then made the putt to maintain a three-shot cushion entering the final round.
Steve Lowery was tied for the lead at 12-under, but finished double bogey-triple bogey to shoot 68. He stands at 7-under-par, along with Matt Kuchar. Kuchar started the day two shots off the lead, but could only muster a 1-over-par 72 to drop six strokes off the pace.
Per Ulrik-Johansson also began the say a couple of shots back of Edwards; however, the Swede double bogeyed his final hole to shoot 5-over 75 and fall into a tie for 40th at 3-under.
