Stefani shoots 70, retains event lead
• Shawn Stefani, a 31-year-old PGA Tour rookie, had to scramble more than he would have preferred, though he converted all the putts he felt he was supposed to make in his round of 70 and holds a 1-stroke lead in the Tampa Bay Championship in Palm Harbor, Fla.
Temperatures finally began to warm, and without much wind throughout the day, the tournament was wide open going into the weekend. Stefani was at 7-under 135, 1 shot ahead of Adam Scott, who shot 66, and past champ K.J. Choi, who shot 67.
