Snedeker shares Pebble Beach lead

Brandt Snedeker: Can he go all the way?

Brandt Snedeker and James Hahn are one-shot clear of the chasing pack heading into the final round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Last year's FedExCup winner Snedeker has enjoyed a fast start to the season, recording three top-three finishes in four tournaments. However, the American has been unable to top the leaderboard come Sunday afternoon.

Snedeker held a share of the lead after 36 holes and remains there, with a third-round 68 enough to keep him in contention. It was a run of four straight birdies on the front nine of the Pebble Beach course that propelled the 32-year-old forward, with an even-par back nine keeping the door open for potential challengers.

Hahn, whose Gangnam-style dance at Phoenix last week turned him into an Internet sensation, was the man who made the most of the opportunity, as he followed up his 65 on Friday with a third-round 66. After a slow start to the round, Hahn produced four birdies in five holes from the seventh to the eleventh as he notched up a bogey-free round.

Despite the presence of his compatriot alongside him on twelve under, Snedeker is upbeat about his chances.

"You never know what tomorrow holds, but I feel like I'm in great position, and I'm going to be surely more prepared, no matter who is around me in the last group," he told the PGA Tour website.

"I'm probably going to have the most experience of anybody in those last couple groups of winning a golf tournament."

Chris Kirk is a shot back on eleven under after firing a six-under-par 64. Patrick Reed (10 under) and Richard H Lee (nine under) are the next best, with a group of five players that includes Retief Goosen a further shot adrift.
