SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Through three rounds of play, Savannah native Tim O'Neal remained in contention at The Championship at Savannah Harbor.

O'Neal shot a third round 69, sitting just six shots back of the lead headed into Saturday's final.

"I only had two birdies today in the last round unfortunately, and I double-bogeyed, so there wasn't much excitement out here today but overall I played okay."

O'Neal finished tied for 30th at -9.

Tournament leader Roberto Castro ran away from the field with a tournament -19 through 13 holes.  Castro would finish at -19 for the win.
