Flesch shares Colonial lead at 8 under
Enquirer news services
FORT WORTH, Texas - Northern Kentuckian Steve Flesch turns 37 today with a chance to win his second PGA Tour event.
Flesch, Brian Gay and Chad Campbell, who shot a course record-tying 9-under-par 61 in windy conditions Saturday, share the third-round lead in the Colonial. Campbell, Brian Gay (65) and Flesch (67) were at 8-under 202.
On Saturday, Flesch, in one of the last groups, had his third straight round under par. His 20-foot birdie at the 188-yard 16th got him a share of the lead.
"The conditions are as difficult as I remember the Colonial playing," Flesch said. "This is a course where playing under par definitely means something."
Flesch, who plays out of Triple Crown Country Club in Union, Ky., finished tied for fifth in his last tournament, the Wachovia, two weeks ago. The left-hander, a Covington Catholic High and University of Kentucky graduate, won the 2003 HP Classic of New Orleans.
LPGA TOUR: Sherri Steinhauer, an 18-year LPGA veteran, capped a 5-under 66 with an eagle 3 and was tied with Becky Morgan for the lead after three rounds of the Sybase Classic in New Rochelle, N.Y. The leaders were at 10-under 203, three shots in front of Young-A Yang and Grace Park.
CHAMPIONS TOUR: Bobby Walzel shot a 5-under 66 to pull within one shot of leader D.A. Weibring (9 under) in the Allianz Championship at West Des Moines, Iowa. Walzel had prostate cancer surgery two years ago.
EUROPEAN TOUR: Gregory Havret shot a 4-under 68 for a 12-under 204 total and a two-stroke lead after three rounds at the Deutsche Bank Open in St. Leon-Rot, Germany.
