Chappell survives gusty winds to lead Texas Open by one

USA's Kevin Chappell

Ryan Palmer shot a second straight four-under 68 to get to six under and into contention.

In danger of slipping away the American picked up shots at the 14th, 16th and 17th, signing for a one-under-par 71, to end the day at the top of the standings on -8. He finally grabbed a share of the lead on the par-5 18th, after nailing his third shot to within five feet and sinking a birdie putt to finish off his round of 65.

The day started with Tony Finau and Bud Cauley tied for the lead at eight-under par, but the two leaders each shot two-over today opening the door for Chappell.

"It was pretty irritating out there", Grace said.

Chappell entered the week with six runner-up finishes and nine total top-3s without a win on the PGA Tour.

After shooting a 74 on Thursday, Palmer has fired a 68 the past two days showing that he can have the consistency and knowledge to get the win.

NOTES: There have not been multiple leaders at the Valero Texas Open after 54 holes since 1993 when Jay Haas, Bob Lohr, Tom Lehman and Dan Forsman shared the lead at Oak Hills. "Obviously, the golf course hit me in the chin real hard early".

"I don't know what the weather has got in store for us tomorrow, but if it's a good day it's going to probably take a couple under (to win)", Grace said. He made me had to do it the right way.

Lahiri had three other bogeys and then had two doubles on his own back nine, at the fifth and ninth holes, after starting from the 10th. "I really took advantage of the finish there". Koepka, who won two years back at Phoenix, was four back and had 10 players between him and the lead. He left his putt from 42 feet well short and missed the 9-foot par putt he had remaining.

At Ridgedale, Missouri, Carlos Franco and Vijay Singh teamed to shoot a course-record 12-under par to rally from seven shots behind and win the PGA Tour Champions' Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Laird looked confident when he birdied the second, but he bogeyed three of the next four holes and laboured to a three-over 75 to close on three under par.

In all, 26 players are within five strokes of the lead heading into the final round, for which weather conditions are expected to mitigate.
