WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - Billy Hurley III shot a 3-under 67 on Saturday to extend his lead to two strokes over Angel Cabrera after the third round of the Greenbrier Classic.

Hurley never relinquished the lead he has held since midway through the second round at Old White TPC. The former U.S. Navy officer birdied the par-5 12th and par-4 13th before dropping a stroke on the par-3 15th.

He had a 12-under 198 total. No third-round leader has won the Greenbrier Classic, now in its fifth year. Playoffs have decided the tournament twice.

Cabrera shot 64. He’s looking for his first non-major win on the PGA Tour.

Kevin Chappell was third at 9 under after a 69. Steve Stricker had a 68 to top the group at 8 under.

FRENCH OPEN

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) - American Kevin Stadler shot a 1-over 72 in windy and rainy conditions to increase his French Open lead to four strokes.

Stadler, the Phoenix Open winner in February, had a 9-under 204 total on Le Golf National’s Albatross Course, the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup.

Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee (69) and France’s Victor Riu (73) were tied for second. U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer (70) was fourth, six strokes behind Stadler.

NOVA SCOTIA OPEN

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (AP) - High wind from Tropical Storm Arthur forced Web.com Tour officials to postpone the third round of the Nova Scotia Open.

Environment Canada measured wind gusts topping 72 mph in Halifax.

The tour will try to complete 36 holes Sunday at Ashburn Golf Club. Canada’s Roger Sloan and Mexico’s Jose de Jesus Rodriguez shared the second-round lead at 10-under 132.
