SUNRIVER, Ore. – Ryan Benzel, an assistant pro at Seattle Golf Club, took a one-stoke lead Saturday after three rounds of the PGA Professional National Championship.

Benzel shot 1-over 73 on the Crosswater course at Sunriver Resort for a 5-under 210 total. He managed to take the lead, heading into Sunday’s final round, despite three bogeys Saturday.

John O’Leary, director of instruction at Pleasant Valley Golf Club in Chantilly, Va., shot a 2-under 70. Chip Sullivan, of Troutville, Va., was also a shot back. He eagled the par-5 2nd hole.

Mike Small, coach at the University of Illinois, shot a 3-over 75, and is two strokes off the lead with Rick Leibovich, the head pro at Tehama Golf Club in Carmel, Calif., and Tim Thelen, the director of instruction at Traditions Golf Club at Texas A&M.

Leibovich and Thelen each shot 1-under 71s on Saturday.

The low 20 scores earn a berth in the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla., Aug. 6-12.
