MONTREAL — Jim Furyk moved into position for his third Canadian Open victory, shooting a 5-under 65 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead at Royal Montreal.

The 44-year-old Furyk, the 2006 winner at Hamilton and 2007 champion at Angus Glen, had a 15-under 195 total after opening with rounds of 67 and 63. He won the last of his 16 PGA Tour titles in 2010.

“(I’m) not really worrying about what position I’m in,” Furyk said about his Sunday approach. “Not looking at the leaderboard too much. Going out there and trying to attack the golf course the same way I have the first three days. I noticed there aren’t many leaderboards on the course, that might be a good thing.”

Coming off a final-round 65 in a fourth-place finish last week in the British Open last Sunday, Furyk has had only one bogey — on the fourth hole of the first round — at Royal Montreal. He leads the field in greens in regulation, hitting 45 of 54 greens, and his tied for third in fairways hit at 33 of 42.

South Africa’s Tim Clark was second after a 64 on the tree-lined Blue Course.

“The guys that are out there who have played well for three days are all capable,” Furyk said. “Timmy Clark’s got a lot of experience. Kyle’s won before.”

Clark had a birdie-eagle start.

“It’s always great to get off to a good start,” Clark said. “Saturdays are normally the toughest day to score on, so you dream of a start like that.”

He tied for fifth two weeks ago in the John Deere Classic, helping to turn around a middling season that included a problem with his left elbow.

“Right now I feel good and I am able to swing how I want to,” Clark said. “Three months ago I started to hit the ball good again, but I just wasn’t scoring. Finally, the last few tournaments, I’ve started to score.”

Kyle Stanley had a 68 to reach 10 under, and Jamie Lovemark was another stroke back after a 67.

Graham DeLaet, trying to become the first Canadian winner in the event in 60 years, was tied for fifth at 8 under after a 70. Tim Petrovic (72), tied for the second-round lead with Furyk, also was 8 under along with Joe Durant (67) and Scott Brown (69).

“Disappointing to three-putt the last,” DeLaet said. “I really wanted to make that birdie and got over-aggressive. But it was a fun day. The crowds were amazing out there. Hopefully, I can do something special.”

With thunderstorms forecast for Sunday, the tee times were moved up and the players will play in threesomes — starting on both the first and 10th tees. The third round was played in breezy, overcast weather, with brief light rain in the afternoon.

INTERNATIONAL CROWN

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Inbee Park and So Yeon Ryu both birdied the first playoff hole and South Korea eliminated the top-seeded United States and earned a wild-card berth in the International Crown finale.

The South Koreans will join Spain, Thailand, Japan and Sweden on Sunday in a duel for title.

After the American team of Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson beat sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn 3 and 2 in better-ball play, Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum and Onnarin Sattayabanphot edged the team of Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis 1-up to leave the U.S. in third place in Pool A.

South Korea, the third-place finisher in Pool B, called upon Park and Ryu to face Kerr and Thompson in a wild-card playoff on the par-5 16th hole.

Spain won Pool A with seven points, earning the tiebreaker over Thailand, which also had seven points. The U.S. had six points and Taiwan finished with four.

Japan split with South Korea on Saturday to emerge atop Pool B with eight points, and Sweden swept Australia to finish with seven points. South Korea had six points and the Aussies had three.

Points accumulated over the first three days carry over to Sunday’s final round, when each country plays one singles match against every other country.

SENIOR BRITISH OPEN

BRIDGEND, Wales — Bernhard Langer stretched his lead to eight strokes in the Senior British Open, shooting a 3-under 68 at Royal Porthcawl to reach 14-under 199.

The 56-year-old German matched the Champions Tour record for the largest 54-hole lead in a 72-hole event set by Jack Nicklaus in the 1991 Senior PGA. At 14 under, Lander also tied the tournament 54-hole record set by Carl Mason at 14-under 196 in 2003 at Turnberry.

Langer won the 2010 tournament at Carnoustie and lost in a playoff last year at Royal Birkdale. He won the Senior Players Championship last month for his third senior major victory and has three Champions Tour wins this year to push his career total to 21.

Canada’s Rick Gibson was second after a 66. American Bob Tway was 5 under after a 66.

MIDWEST CLASSIC

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Jarrod Lyle shot a 3-under 68 in the Web.com Tour’s Midwest Classic, leaving the Australian 11 strokes behind Zack Sucher in his first U.S. event since his second bout with leukemia

The 32-year-old Lyle was tied for 23rd at 9-under 204 at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. He eagled the par-4 18th for a back-nine 31. When Lyle returns to the PGA Tour in October, he will have 20 events to earn $283,825 and reach the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list in 2012, the year he suffered a recurrence.

Sucher shot a 64, making eight birdies in a 10-hole stretch. He was 20 under.

Former Kansas State player Aaron Watkins was second at 17 under after a 64.

U.S. JUNIOR AMATEUR

THE WOODLANDS, Texas — William Zalatoris won the U.S. Junior Amateur, beating Davis Riley 5 and 3 in the 36-hole final at The Club at Carlton Woods.

The 17-year-old Zalatoris, from Plano, holed out from 115 yards for eagle on the 32nd hole — the par-4 14th on the Nicklaus Course — to take a 4-up lead and ended the match with a par win on the 33rd hole.

The 17-year-old Riley, from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, finished second for the second straight year. Last year, he fell 3 and 2 to Scottie Scheffler at Martis Camp in Truckee, California.

Zalatoris, a rising Wake Forest freshman, was making his record-tying fifth appearance in the event.

Riley is set to play at Alabama.

U.S. GIRLS’ JUNIOR

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Princess Mary Superal won the U.S. Girls’ Junior to become the first Filipino winner in U.S. Golf Association play, beating Mexico’s Marijosse Navarro on the 37th hole.

The 17-year-old Superal won the par-5 36th hole with a birdie to pull even and ended the match with a par on the first extra hole — the par-5 14th on Forest Highlands — after Navarro drove into the water.

The 17-year-old Navarro rallied to square the match with birdie wins on the 32nd and 33rd holes and took a 1-up lead with a par win on the 35th. A three-time Women’s Mexican Amateur champion, she was sixth this year for Texas A&M in the NCAA tournament.
