Sunday, July 24, 2011
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Bo Van Pelt birdied four of his last five holes, including the final two, to finish with 65 on Saturday and a one stroke lead after three rounds at the RBC Canadian Open.
Canadian Adam Hadwin, playing on a sponsor’s exemption, missed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to finish with a 68, and alone in second at 4-under 206.
Andres Romero (67) and first-round leader Kris Blanks (69) are tied for third, two shots back, after another tough day in the thick rough along the tight, tree-lined Shaugnessy Golf and Country Club.
John Daly, who four-putted No. 18 for triple-bogey Friday, shot 67 and is in a group of four at 2 under with Sean O Hair (66), Aron Price (69), and Geoff Ogilvy (70) heading into Sunday’s final round.
Senior British Open
WALTON ON THE HILL, England (AP) — Mark Calcavecchia surrendered a three-shot cushion to finish the third round tied for the lead with fellow American Russ Cochran and South Africa’s David Frost.
Calcavecchia, the overnight co-leader, was in cruise control at 10 under with six holes remaining but made a triple-bogey 7 at No. 13 after driving into the heather and then dropped another shot on No. 16.
A birdie at the final hole left the 1989 British Open champion at 7 under. Frost shot a bogey-free 66 — tied for the week’s best round — and Cochran had a 67.
Corey Pavin and Barry Lane each shot a 69 and are a shot back of the leaders, with three more Americans — Chip Beck, Mike Goodes and Lee Rinker — at 5 under.
EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Former champion Ai Miyazato of Japan took a two-shot lead, shooting a 5-under 67 in the third round to move to 13 under overall.
Miyazato, who won her first LPGA title at the Evian Masters two years ago, made five birdies. She heads into Sunday’s fourth round ahead of a group of four players, including Kraft Nabisco winner Stacy Lewis.
Overnight leader Miki Saiki of Japan, Ran Hong of South Korea and Angela Stanford are also at 11 under.
I.K. Kim of South Korea moved into contention after shooting up the leaderboard from 2 under overnight to 10 under with a brilliant round of 64.
