Vijay Singh, at 56, in the Final Pairing at the Honda Classic

2:28 Rookie Wyndham Clark remained calm and confident as he prepares to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Hon

Wyndham Clark will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Honda Classic as he goes in search of his maiden win on the PGA Tour.

CHAMPIONS: In Tucson, Arizona, Kenny Perry shot an 8-under 65 to take the Cologuard Classic lead, Mark O'Meara matched the PGA Tour Champions record with eight straight birdies in a 66, and former baseball star John Smoltz failed to build on a strong start in his tour debut.

"I didn't know exactly where I was (on the leaderboard), but I knew I was close to the lead", said Clark, whose best finish this season was a tie for 10th in the Puerto Rico Open. Possible advantage to the big names, but Clark is not quick to buy into that theory.

Clark, who helped OR capture the 2017 NCAA Championship, birdied five of the first seven holes in round three and finished 54 holes at 7-under 203.

"It's work, determination, believing in what I believe in", said Singh, who survived a super-windy Sunday to win the 1999 Honda at Herron Bay by two shots over Payne Stewart. "It's fun to come full circle and be where I'm at now".

However, Clark will have the pressure of a final round to overcome along with a tour veteran trailing closely behind. What will he do to get ready?

Seria A: Ronaldo a doubt for Juventus' trip to Napoli
Juve also top the division by an incredible 13 points after 25 games played - and are yet to lose a single league game all season. Ronaldo suffered a left ankle injury.

"I played really well", Singh said.

In fact, some day he wants to be one of those big names. I like the moment. "I'm looking forward to it". Kyoung-Hoon Lee and Keith Mitchell are also on six under after respective scores of 68 and 70.

Strangely, you could double Clark's age and he would still be six years younger than the 56-year-old Singh.

But in addition to fighting off leader Clark, making only his 19th tour start in search of his first PGA crown, Singh must contend with those alongside him in second, first-win hopefuls Lee Kyoung-hoon of South Korea and American Keith Mitchell, with United States star Rickie Fowler another shot back on 205. In addition, Singh has three majors to his credit (Masters in 2000; PGA Championship in 2004 and 2008). He said his ball striking has been below average, but he is happy with his putting. "He's a ball-striker. He's not as long as he used to be, but on this golf course you don't necessarily have to be long. So I found some that did".

Vijay Singh plays a shot on the first hole during Saturday's third round of the Honda Classic at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

A victory would at this stage of life would mean a lot to him. "I've worked pretty hard".
