Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – Building on the momentum of a second round of 64 (-7) over the Champion Course at PGA National, Brad Fritsch of Manotick, Ontario continued his push at the Tour Final Qualifying on Saturday.

The 37-year old, who now makes his home in North Carolina, added another score of -7 during the third round of the six round event, this time over the Fazio Course where he shot even par during round one.

The rounds of 72, 64, and 65 put Fritsch at -14 and leading the tournament by two strokes.

If he can maintain that position until the end of the event on Tuesday he would not only secure top prize of $25,000 but would go from playing a guaranteed four starts on the 2015 Tour to playing any event he wanted.  The low finisher (s) earn exempt status for 2015 and a reprieve from having to be reshuffled in priority rankings throughout the season.

Fritsch tees off at 10:12 a.m. Eastern on Sunday off the first tee at the Champion Course.
