Money leader Ortiz keeps lead in Portland
Saturday, August 23, 2014
Carlos Ortiz shot 1-under 70 Saturday to keep his lead at the Portland Open and stay in position to win the Web.com Tour money title.
Ortiz, a two-time winner on the Web.com Tour this season, entered the week No. 1 on the money list. At 14 under, he enters Sunday's final round at Witch Hollow in North Plains, Ore., with a two-shot advantage over Adam Hadwin, who is 10th on the money list entering the week.
The top 25 players on the money list after this week earn their 2014-15 PGA Tour cards.
Sebastian Cappelen, No. 25 in earnings this season, missed the cut Friday, leaving the door open for Greg Owen, who is currently T-18. Owen is still projected at 26th as of Saturday, but could move past Cappelen if he gains a few more spots on the leaderboard Sunday.
