Bradley, who entered the day two strokes clear of the field, carded 16 pars against two bogeys in the second round, good enough for a 2-over par 73 and a three-shot lead over Tom Lewis of Bonney Lake, Wash.

Bradley and Lewis will be paired with four-time PNGA Senior Men’s Amateur champion Tom Brandes of Bellevue, Wash. in the final round, teeing off at 11:00am.

Lewis fired a 1-over 72, and now sits two strokes back of Bradley.

Watson fired the round of the day (2-under 69) in the Super Senior Championship, moving into a tie with round one leader Gary Vanier, who finished the day with a 1-over 72. Watson capped the round with three birdies in his final five holes, sending him straight up the leader board into a tie for first.

Watson and Vanier will tee off at 1:30pm in tomorrow’s final group, along with Stephen Rhorer of Costa Mesa, Calif. who sits just one back.
