S.M. Lee of Dalton State is leading the 156-player field at 10-under par, five strokes ahead of his nearest competitor Rupert Kaminski of Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City vaulted to the top of the team standings and now leads at 4-under par as a team with scores of 290-282-276--848. Dalton State and Coastal Georgia are eight strokes back apiece at 4-over after three rounds of play.
Friday's final round will feature the top 17 teams and 40 individuals (including ties).
