Snedeker leads in Phoenix

 •  Miyazato wins second in row

Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Brandt Snedeker is back to playing like the rising young PGA Tour star he was supposed to be.

The 29-year-old Tennessean rolled in his sixth birdie of the day on No. 17 and finished at 14-under 199 yesterday for a one-shot lead over Scott Piercy going into today's final round of the Phoenix Open.

Snedeker shot a 66 while Piercy had a pair of eagles en route to a 65 in the third round amid a loud, rowdy crowd estimated at just over 121,000.

Hawai'i's Parker McLachlin, a Punahou and UCLA alum, shot a 1-under 70 for a 6-under 207 total and is tied for 41st place.
