The 28-year-old former Louisville player had a 12-under 198 total on TPC Sawgrass' Dye's Valley Course. A victory Sunday would give him the top priority ranking in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Blair, needing to earn about $40,000 for a PGA Tour card, shot a 71 in the rain-delayed round.

Jason Gore was third at 10 under after a 66. He also earned a PGA Tour card in the regular season.

The top 25 on the Web.com money list have earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for PGA Tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. The other players are fighting for another 25 cards based on their earnings in the series.
