LOS ANGELES (AP) - William McGirt had never matched par in his two previous trips to Riviera. Now he’s one round away from his first PGA Tour victory.
McGirt opened with eight birdies in 13 holes on a day when everything felt easy. He wound up with a 6-under 65 on Saturday in the Northern Trust Open, giving him a two-shot lead going into the final round.
McNeill, whose two wins were in the old Fall Series and an opposite-field event, started with an eagle and picked up a final birdie on the par-3 16th for a 66. Beljan, who lost in a playoff at Riviera last year to John Merrick, belted a 3-wood into 8 feet for eagle on the 11th hole and shot a 68.
Jason Allred, the feel-good story this week after Monday qualifying for his first PGA Tour event in more than three years, had a 67 and joined Brian Harman (68) at 9 under. The group at 8 under had star power - Jordan Spieth (67), Dustin Johnson (69), Bubba Watson (64), Charl Schwartzel (68) and Jimmy Walker (67), who is going for his fourth win of the season after winning last week at Pebble Beach.
WOMEN’S AUSTRALIAN OPEN
Choi had two eagles, seven birdies and a bogey to match 17-year-old Australian amateur Minjee Lee at 13-under 203 in the event sacntioned by the LPGA, European and Australian tours.
Winless on the LPGA Tour, Choi rebounded from a bogey on No. 13 with four straight birdies and an eagle on the par-5 18th. Lee shot 68.
Sixteen-year-old Lydia Ko of New Zealand was third at 11 under a 69. Second ranked Suzann Pettersen of Norway was another stroke back after a 72.
ACE GROUP CLASSIC
Langer, also the 2011 winner and 2012 runner-up, followed his opening 64 with a 70. He won the season-opening event in Hawaii last month for his 19th Champions Tour title.
