World No. 23 Brandt Snedeker is confident to turn some heads going into the round three of the Fijian International at the Natadola Bay Golf Championship today.

The 36-year old is tied with overnight leader Anthony Houston of Australia at second spot on a total 134.

Snedeker shot 7 under 65 in round two better than round one score of three under 69.

“I have to keep on going well, there is no back up,” he said.

“If you have a tough day, couple of under would be good and you have to play 15 or 16 under par to win this.”

The Nashville, Tennessee native shot one eagle on No. 6 and carded five birdies.

“It was fantastic; I had a whole lot of opportunities. I landed an eagle on the front nine which is nice as I drove the ball really well. It was fine on the first nine but it took a turn and it started blowing,” he said.

“Did not make any bogey which is something I did right. I hope can build on this and realise that there will be two more tough days. The winds will be picking up this weekend.

“I told myself going today that five under would be better and would put me where I want to be but then I shot seven under.

“But comfortable with where I’m going into the weekend. There is a lot of golf left and you need to take advantage of the condition which is the important thing.

This golf course does jump and is bit very quick so hopefully I can stay away from the big numbers.

“There are lots of quality players here.
