Love Iii Leads By One

By Compiled From Wire Services

At New Orleans, Davis Love III fueled by two eagles and three birdies - made a thirdround move at the Freeport McMoRan Classic in hopes of winning a trip to The Masters.

Despite a bogey on the 14th hole, Love was in the clubhouse with a one-stroke lead in the rain-delayed tournament. He was 13-under-par after a 66.

Steve Jones was a shot back when play was called because of darkness. Pullman’s Kirk Triplett has a three-round score of 210 and is 7-under. Six players had not completed their rounds when play was called. Among them were Mike Standly and David Duval, 11-under through 15 holes.

At Scottsdale, Ariz., Jack Nicklaus’ third round at The Tradition was a masterpiece only by comparison with the mess Isao Aoki, his coleader, dealt himself.

Both birdied the final hole to drop to 7-under 209 and open a one-stroke lead on the field.

The last of his six birdies allowed Nicklaus to card a 3-under 69 for the round. By contrast, Aoki started at 7-under, and the last of his six birdies merely balanced out a pair of double bogeys and two bogeys.
