Boros, Burke Share Lead At Bay Hill Invitational

Compiled From Wire Services

A soft course and a still day led to a lot of low numbers Saturday in the third round of the Bay Hill Invitational at Orlando, Fla., as Guy Boros shot a 6-under-par 66 for a share of the lead with Patrick Burke.

Boros, finishing strongly for the second consecutive round, birdied four of the last five holes, including an outstanding 7-iron from thick rough on No. 18 to within 2 feet.

That got Boros to 10-under 206 and into a tie with Burke, a co-leader after the second round who shot a 69.

Boros is the son of two-time U.S. Open winner Julius Boros, who died two years ago.

Jeff Maggert was another stroke back at 207.

Former Pullman resident Kirk Triplett shot a 67 for a total of 4-under 212.

At Newport Beach, Calif., Jim Colbert, continuing his bogey-free golf, carded a 6-under 65 to take a five-shot lead in the second round of the $1 million Toshiba Senior PGA Classic.

Lee Trevino’s birdie at the 18th hole gave him a 1-under 70 and a share of second place with defending champion George Archer. Trevino and Archer, who shot a 3-under 68, stand at 138.

Danielle Ammaccapane shot a 6-under 66 to open a two-stroke lead in the Ping-Welch’s Championship at Tucson, Ariz.

With three birdies in the last four holes of the third round, Ammaccapane reached 12-under 204. Cathy Johnston-Forbes fired a 65 with a two-bogey, nine-birdie round that included five birdies on the last six holes. She was second at 206.

Robin Walton of Clarkston, Idaho, shot 72 for a three-day score of 2-under 214. Tracy Hanson of Rathdrum, Idaho, carded a 70 and enters the final round at 3-under 213.
