While Tiger Woods held his ground for a finalround charge, Fred Funk made his move in the B.C. Open at Endicott, N.Y.
Funk, a former University of Maryland coach with three career victories, shot an 8-under-par 63 for a share of the third-round lead with Pete Jordan.
Jordan, who began the round with a three-stroke lead, shot a 66 to match Funk at 16-under 197 on the En-Joie Golf Club.
Woods, the three-time U.S. Amateur champion making his fourth professional start, also shot a 66 to remain three back.
Inspired by chanting fans and a beautiful fall day, Europe rallied for a 9-7 lead over the United States in the Solheim Cup going into the final day of 12 crucial singles matches at Chepstow, Wales.
It was a great day for Europe and a miserable one for the Americans, who entered the second day with a 5-3 lead, but simply didn’t hole any putts. Of a possible eight points available in morning foursomes (alternate shot) and afternoon four-ball (better ball), the Americans won only two.
Frenchman Jean Van de Velde followed his course-record 65 with a 4-under 67 to go into the final round of the $1.16 million Loch Lomond World Invitational tied for the lead at 207 with Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn at Glasgow, Scotland.
Daylong rains washed out the second round of the Brickyard Crossing Senior PGA event at Indianapolis.
