Question of the Day
MEMPHIS, TENN. (AP) - Rookie Shawn Stefani overcame a quadruple bogey and shot a 4-under 66 on Saturday to take the third-round lead in the St. Jude Classic.
The 31-year-old Texan blew a two-stroke lead with the quadruple bogey on No. 11, but rebounded with four birdies over his final five holes to move back atop the leaderboard. He had eight birdies to go with that quadruple bogey to reach 12-under 198 at TPC Southwind.
Harris English was a stroke back after a 69, finishing out of the lead for the first time this week.
Scott Stallings, Patrick Reed and Nicholas Thompson were 8 under. Stallings had a 67, Reed shot 64, and Thompson had a 66. Phil Mickelson was another stroke back after a 65.
Thirteen players shot at least 4 under on a day with easier pins on the small, firm greens.
This is just the 16th tour event for Stefani, who earned his way onto the PGA Tour by finishing sixth on the Web.com Tour money list in 2012 in a two-time win season.
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) _ Overcoming rain and a muddy course, Morgan Pressel shot a 2-under 70 to take the lead after two rounds of the LPGA Championship.
At 6-under 138, Pressel had a two-shot lead over top-ranked Inbee Park and Chella Choi. Park shot 68, while Choi, the first-round leader, struggled with a 73.
The final two rounds will be squeezed into a 36-hole marathon Sunday at Locust Hill Country Club to determine the winner of the tour’s second major. The change in schedule came after nearly five inches of rain fell Thursday, forcing officials to postpone the first round.
Pressel hasn’t won since the 2008 Kapalua LPGA Classic. The American, the 2007 Kraft Nabisco winner, is attempting to end a string of eight straight majors won by Asian-born players.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) _ David Frost birdied the 16th and 17th holes en route to a 6-under 66 and a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples after the third round of the Regions Tradition.
Frost, the South African who won the Toshiba Classic in March for his fourth Champions Tour title, had four birdies on the final eight holes to move to 12-under 205 in the major championship.
Couples, the Presidents Cup captain and World Golf Hall of Famer, shot a bogey-free 68.
