CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) - Brian Harman birdied the 18th hole Saturday for a 5-under 65 and a one-stroke lead over fellow Georgia left-hander Bubba Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet in the Travelers Championship.

Looking for his second PGA Tour victory, Harman had a bogey-free round to take a 14-under 196 total into the final round at TPC River Highlands.

Watson, two strokes ahead after the second round, shot a 68. DeLeat had a 64.

Brandt Snedeker, Paul Casey and Zach Johnson were 11 under. Snedeker had a 63 to match the best round of the day, and Casey and Johnson shot 64.

With a storm heading to Connecticut, officials said Sunday’s round will be played in threesomes, going off the first and 10th tees beginning at 11:30 a.m.


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Bernhard Langer and Jeff Maggert shared the lead over a bunched field heading into the final round of the U.S. Senior Open.

Langer shot a 2-under 68, and Maggert had a 70 on Saturday. They were at 5-under 205 for the championship at Del Paso, where conditions cooled off after consecutive days above 100 degrees.

But the competition remained hot, with eight players within a shot of the lead. That includes Tom Watson, Kenny Perry and defending champion Colin Montgomerie.

The 65-year-old Watson, who was tied with Maggert and Peter Fowler through 36 holes, salvaged after a tough round with a 71. Perry shot a 64 to surge into contention, and Montgomerie had a 70.

Langer is coming off a major victory June 14 in the Senior Players Championship in Massachusetts. Maggert won the Regions Tradition in May in Alabama for his first major title.

She finished her rain-delayed first round with a 66 early Saturday morning, and took the lead with her final putt of the second round.

Mi Jung Hur and Anna Nordqvist were tied for second at 11 under. Hur completed a first-round 63 and shot a 68 in the second. Nordqvist birdied the final hole for a second-round 66.
