Saturday, June 9, 2012
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Defending champion Tom Lehman shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Regions Tradition, a Champions Tour major.
Lehman had a 10-under 206 total at Shoal Creek. Peter Senior, a playoff loser to Lehman last year, and Jeff Sluman were tied for second. Senior shot 66, and Sluman 70 on an overcast, gusty and sometimes drizzly day.
Bill Glasson held the lead for all but the tournament's first hole coming into the day, but fell three shots back with a 74. He was tied with Russ Cochran, Brad Bryant and Fred Funk. Bryant and Funk shot 71, and Cochran had a 72.
With stormy weather expected Sunday, the final round is scheduled for an early two-tee start.
