Kuest, 25, is making his fifth PGA Tour start after qualifying for the event via his tie for fourth at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
This week, Kuest picked up where he left off, shooting rounds of 67, 67, and 65. He was two-strokes back of leader Brendon Todd heading into the final 18 holes.
After his third-round 6-under 65, Kuest spoke to CBS reporter Amanda Balionis Renner on the broadcast.
Per Balionis Renner, by making the cut this week in Silvis, Illinois, the American has now earned special temporary membership on the PGA Tour for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
With a win, Kuest would of course earn automatic full PGA Tour membership.
It's the sort of thing that can create added pressure as players compete in their final 18 holes, knowing how much is on the line.
For Kuest, however, he's looking at this week with a much different perspective.
"It's been a fun two weeks, and we just hope to keep it rolling, and you know hopefully get a win tomorrow," Kuest said, adding:
In addition the the automatic membership that comes with a win, players are competing for the $1.332m prize that comes from this week's $7.4m purse.
