GANANOQUE, Ont. -- David Dragoo overcame a double bogey to maintain his lead at The Great Waterway on Saturday heading into the final round.

The American shot an even-par 71 in the third round of the Canadian Tour event to stay one stroke ahead of Eugene Wong of North Vancouver, B.C., at 13 under.

It was an up and down day for Dragoo, who bogeyed on the first hole, rebounded with three birdies then stumbled with the double bogey on No. 9.

"It was a battle out there today for sure," said Dragoo. "I was really in survival mode today but I did hit some excellent shots and I'm excited for tomorrow."

Wong, who is playing for his third Canadian Tour victory in as many weeks, stayed within reach of Dragoo with a 68.

"My confidence is definitely high especially with the putter," said Wong. "I feel really comfortable over putts knowing that where I aim is where I'm going to hit it."

American Daniel Im had the best round of the day by five strokes with a 8-under 63.

Im's hot start, which included birdies on six of his first seven holes and an eagle on, moved him into a tie for third at 11 under with Will Strickler and Trey Denton.

"I got off to a great start, " said Im. "That really set me up for the rest of the day. I hit it really well and just tried to keep it in front of me out there."
