However, a three-putt led to a bogey, leaving the door open for Snodgrass.
"I was playing well," said Snodgrass, who had her swing coach, Sarah Yost, at her side. "Then I had two doubles and it kind of got away from me. I knew where I was all day, I felt comfortable and I knew I was right there.
"Their nerves had to be just as bad as mine, because they want to win as bad as I did. I just had to trust my own game."
Snodgrass led after the first round before Flood-Sawczyszyn tied her entering the third round of the 54-hole championship.
The 17-year-old Snodgrass said her confidence is at an all-time high.
"On the 18th tee and we're tied and I'm first up," Snodgrass said. "What am I going to do? I just had that confidence that I was going to hit my driver well. The last time I hit driver I hit it out of bounds left, so I had to have confidence in it to come back with it."
