Lewis salvages Day 3 on 18

PARIS — American Stacy Lewis made birdie on the last hole to share the lead with South Korea's Inbee Park after the third round of the Evian Masters on Saturday.

Lewis, chasing her third LPGA Tour title of the year, shot 1-over 73 to finish the day at 11-under 205 The overnight leader had two bogeys and a double bogey on the back nine.

"I feel like I'm still in the tournament and just got to make some putts" today, said Lewis, who equaled the course record in her opening round. "I shot 63 the first day, so I know I can play good out here. I'm not too worried about it."

Park, three shots behind Lewis in third place entering the third round, had four birdies and two bogeys for 2-under 70.

Karrie Webb (67), Natalie Gulbis (68) and 17-year-old amateur Hyo Joo Kim (69) of South Korea were one shot behind the leaders.

"Amazingly, it was my best round of the week but probably not my best ball-striking day," said Webb, the 2006 Evian winner, after making six birdies. "I made a couple of nice long ones."

Gulbis, the 2007 champion, had eagle on the ninth hole: "The change in my round (was) that I eagled nine … definitely turned my round in the right direction."

Cristie Kerr had 67 and was two shots back.

Seminole's Brittany Lincicome (73) was tied for 37th at 3 under, and Tampa's Cindy LaCrosse (73) tied for 59th at 2-over.

Langer moves in front at Senior British

TURNBERRY, Scotland — Bernhard Langer shot 4-under 66 for a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples heading into the final round of the Senior British Open.

Couples had seven birdies in a round of 64. Peter Fowler shot 65, two shots behind Langer, who is at 7-under 203 overall.

"I'm just happy to be in the hunt with 18 holes to play," said Langer, who won this title two years ago at Carnoustie. "There's a lot of guys in with a chance, so I know I'll have to shoot one of the lower scores to win."

Americans John Cook (66) and overnight leader Gary Hallberg (73) joined England's Barry Lane (66) at four shots back.

PGA: Robert Garrigus broke the 54-hole scoring record at the Canadian Open that was set more than a half-century ago by Arnold Palmer.

On rain-softened greens that took the bite out of Hamilton Golf & Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario, Garrigus combined his power with some timely putts for 6-under 64 that gave him a one-shot lead over William McGirt, who lost ground despite his 66.

Scott Piercy had 67 and was another shot behind.

Garrigus was at 16-under 194, one shot better than Palmer in 1955, who was matched two years ago by Dean Wilson.

"Oops. Sorry, Arnie," Garrigus said when told about the record.
