(Reuters) – Jason Bohn took a two-shot lead into the final round of the weather-delayed New Orleans Classic in Avondale, Louisiana on Sunday after carding a one-under-par 71 in the third round earlier in the day.
The 37-year-old American, bidding for his second PGA Tour title, posted a 13-under total of 203 after completing the last 12 holes of his rain-interrupted round.
Bohn held a two-stroke advantage over Germany’s Alex Cejka (68) with Americans Lee Janzen (69), Chris Couch (68) and Jeff Overton (70) a further shot back at 10 under.
Veteran American David Toms, the 2001 champion, was among a group of four players bunched at nine under after returning a 69.
“My confidence is really good right now, I feel very comfortable,” Bohn told reporters before setting off for the final round at the TPC Louisiana.
“I feel calm, relaxed so I’m just going to go out and play aggressive. The wind’s not as bad as it has been the last two days so I expect somebody to go out and shoot a low number. So I’ve got to keep putting the pressure on.”
Bohn won his first PGA Tour title at the 2005 B.C. Open.
