Brooke Henderson took the lead into the final round of the CP Women’s Open in Saskatchewan, fighting through gusting wind at Wascana Country Club in pursuit of a breakthrough home victory.
The 20-year-old Canadian star shot a 2-under 70 in clear and cool conditions to reach 14-under 202 and take a 1-stroke lead.
Kevin Sutherland shot a 12-under 60 in the Boeing Classic, birdieing the final four holes to finish a stroke off his own PGA Tour Champions record.
Needing an eagle on the par-5 18th for another 59, Sutherland made a birdie after missing the green with a 3-iron approach. He was tied for the lead with Ken Tanigawa at 14-under 130.
Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington and Andrea Pavan shot flawless 7-under 65s to share the lead after the third round of the Czech Masters.
The two had seven birdies apiece to finish with a 17-under total of 199 at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague. Second-round leader Gavin Green of Malaysia is 3 strokes behind after his 70.
Jim Knous birdied the first five holes and shot a 6-under 65 in Columbus for a share of the third-round lead with Robert Streb in the Web.com Tour Finals-opening Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship.
Knous matched Streb at 12-under 201 on Ohio State University’s Scarlett Course. The 28-year-old Knous, a former Colorado School of Mines player, was 52nd on the Web.com Tour’s regular-season money list.
“Five birdies in a row obviously is a dream come true,” Knous said. “I was just hitting shots good, hitting shots close to the hole. There really weren’t that many long putts. The putt on No. 5 was a downhill trickler about 20 feet, so that was kind of a bonus there.”
Streb, the second-round leader, birdied the par-4 18th for a 68.
