WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Johnson Wagner shot a 6-under 64 Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Greenbrier Classic.
Wagner was 14 under overall on the Old White TPC course in West Virginia. Jimmy Walker also shot a 64 and was second at 12 under.
Sweden’s Jonas Blixt was 10 under after shooting 67. Texas teenager Jordan Spieth and two others are 9 under.
Wagner entered the day one stroke behind Matt Every. Wagner had seven birdies and a bogey in his round.
No third-round leader has gone on to win the Greenbrier Classic, now in its fourth year.
The tournament has been decided by playoffs the past two years, and Stuart Appleby shot 59 in the final round to win by a stroke in 2010.
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland and Richard Sterne of South Africa share a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the French Open.
McDowell shot a 1-under 70 while Sterne had a 71 on the tough Albatross course of Le Golf National, leaving both at 5-under 208.
Bernd Wiesberger of Austria (68), David Howell of England (69) and Richard Green of Australia (70) were at 209. Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark and Simon Dyson of England were at 210.
Francesco Molinari of Italy had the day’s best round, a 67 that left him four shots back. Second-round leader Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay fell to 214 after a 78.
Thomas Bjorn of Denmark held a two-shot lead after a birdie on No. 8 — where he nearly had a hole-in-one but the ball lipped out — before dropping four shots in the last four holes.
Martin Kaymer of Germany, Ian Poulter of England and Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain are part of a five-way tie at 213.
