Levin in position to chase first win

By Chris Dunham, PGATOUR.COM Spencer Levin has been close before. He tied for 4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this year, lost the Mayakoba golf classic in a playoff, and faded with a final-round 76 in the final group on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. The 27-year old had seven top 10s in the last two years but is still in search of his maiden victory on the PGA TOUR. After Saturday’s 7-under 64, he’s just three back in what is setting up to be a great Sunday shootout in Las Vegas.

“It would be nice to get a win,” Levin said. “I know I'm going to have to shoot a really low score, but I'm in good shape. I’ve got a chance tomorrow. I'll have to play really good, but obviously a win would be nice. It would be nice to get to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.” Levin, who has carded at least five birdies in each round this week, knows that solid start on Sunday’s opening nine will put him in great position to break through with that victory. “The Back 9 seems to be maybe a little more score-able,” he said. “I think the key to this course is getting off to a good start on the front nine because you know you're going to have some birdie looks on the back.”
