Quigley Leads Dominion Energy Charity Classic on Champions Tour
Rhode Island’s Brett Quigley fired a five-under 67 on Saturday to take a one shot lead into the final round of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic.
“Nice start, played solid. The wind was tough today. Then I kind of stalled there at the end, but saw that Yang shot a heck of a score, 63, so I knew there were birdies coming in. Overall, five-under starting the day, be very happy with that,” said Quigley after the round.
Quigley is nine-under for the tournament and is one shot ahead of Y.E. Yang, Harrison Frazar and Richard Green, all of whom are eight-under.
He will be in the final group on Sunday.
“I think I’m just more patient with myself, for sure. I’m not fretting that other stuff that’s involved and just trying too hard. Certainly a couple of weeks ago freed me up, and I’m just playing nice golf, nothing too like up or down, just pretty steady,” Quigley added.
Quigley is coming off a win at the Constellation Furyk & Friends a few weeks ago.
After taking last week off, he will now look for his second win in his last two starts.
Starting the second round at four-under par, Quigley opened with pars on the first four holes of the day to stay at even.
He then made birdies on the fifth and sixth holes, before pouring on another birdie on the ninth hole to turn at 33.
On the back side, Quigley birdied the tenth hole and the 12th hole to get to five under for the round.
He would par out the rest of the way to stay at that number.
