Davis, Molder tied for Colonial lead;
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Brian Davis had his second consecutive 65 on Saturday while Bryce Molder shot 67, putting them both at 16 under entering the final round at the Colonial.
Both players are seeking their first PGA Tour win, along with the champion’s plaid jacket and a check of more than $1 million.
Kenny Perry’s tournament-record mark of 19 under, which he set when winning in 2003 and 2005, could be in serious jeopardy. The next-best score for a Colonial was 17 under by three players last year, when Steve Stricker won a two-hole playoff.
There are 17 players at 11 under or better going into the final round.
Zach Johnson (64) was a stroke behind the leaders. Ben Crane (64) joined first-round co-leaders Jeff Overton (66) and Jason Bohn (68) in a tie for fourth at 14 under.
Senior PGA Championship
PARKER, Colo. (AP) – Jay Don Blake and former major winner Tom Lehman are tied for the lead at 6 under entering the final round of the Senior PGA Championship.
Blake shot a 2-under 70 in the third round at the Colorado Golf Club, while Lehman fired a 71 in swirling winds that made scoring difficult. Fred Couples struggled to a 3-over 75, but is still only two strokes off the pace along with Mark O’Meara (67) and Mike Goodes (70).
Seven others are within four strokes of the leaders.
David Frost collected seven birdies in a bogey-free round, setting the course record with a 65. Making his debut at the Senior PGA Championship, Frost opened with rounds of 72 and 77.
MADRID (AP) – Rhys Davies of Wales and Luke Donald of England are at 16 under and have a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Madrid Masters.
Davies shot a 5-under 67 in the third round, while Donald had a 68.
Italy’s Francesco Molinari had five birdies in his first seven holes for 65 that left him two shots back, while Alvaro Quiros of Spain was another stroke back after a 64. Quiros is going for a second victory on home soil this season after winning the Spanish Open.
Graeme Storm of England (67) was four back.
