Toms blows 7-shot lead; Wi leads at Colonial

FORT WORTH, Texas – Charlie Wi made a 32-foot birdie putt on the par-3 16th hole soon after a weather delay at Colonial, taking the lead after playing partner David Toms blew a seven-stroke advantage in the third round Saturday.

After Wi holed the birdie putt, Toms’ 16-foot par chance just missed for a two-stroke swing.

Wi finished with a 4-under 66 to get to 13 under, a stroke better than Toms (74) and four ahead of John Senden (70).

Toms built his huge lead with bogey-free 62s in the first two rounds. He opened with a birdie Saturday before three bogeys in a five-hole stretch.

Worse was a three-putt from 7½ feet for double bogey at No. 14, where Wi chipped to 12 feet to save par right before a 1-hour, 20-minute delay.
