Snedeker up

Natadola, Fiji — Brandt Snedeker took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the wind-swept Fiji International, shooting a 2-under 70 in difficult conditions at Natadola Bay.

Coming off the United States’ Ryder Cup victory Sunday in Minnesota, Snedeker had three birdies and a bogey to reach 12-under 204 on the Vijay Singh-designed layout. He opened with a 69 and shot a 64 on Friday.

Australia’s Anthony Houston was second after a 73, and countryman Matthew Giles, the second-round leader, was 8 under after a 75. New Zealand’s Gareth Paddison followed his course-record 64 with a 69 to join Australia’s Michael Hendry (68) at 7 under.
