After leading by two strokes following the second round, Svensson is now tied for second with Jamie Lovemark of the U.S. Both players are one stroke behind American Peter Uihlein.

The 27-year-old Svensson, who earned his second Korn Ferry Tour win three weeks ago in Savannah, Ga, is 13th in the tour's standings. The top 25 at the end of the regular season earn PGA Tour cards.

A win this week would guarantee him a return to the PGA Tour this fall after competing there during the 2018-19 season.
