Paul Casey takes 3-shot lead at PGA's Deutsche Bank

NORTON, Mass. — Paul Casey looked at the leaderboard late in the third round Sunday and saw a lot more names in the mix than he realized. He took care of that with a 3-iron within 30 inches on the final hole for eagle and a three-shot lead at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Then he looked at the forecast and realized his work was just starting.

Casey made birdie and eagle over his last three holes for 5-under 66, giving him 15-under 198 and a three-shot lead over Brian Harman going into the Labor Day finish as he tries to win on the PGA Tour for the first time in seven years.

"To be sitting here at 66, I'm obviously over the moon," Casey said.

Just five players were within five shots of Casey. But it was difficult to count out anyone with a forecast today for 35 mph winds and burst of showers from the remnants of Hurricane Hermine due in New England.

Starting times have been moved forward to give the tournament the best chance of finishing.

"I don't think anyone's completely prepared for" today, Harman said after his round. "It's more about survival and just doing the best you can."

Harman is in the final group with Casey and Smylie Kaufman (68), who was in the group at 11-under 202 along with Jimmy Walker (70) and Kevin Chappell, the second-round leader who shot 71.

LPGA: Caroline Masson broke out of a star-filled pack to win the Manulife Classic in Cambridge, Ontario, for her first tour title.

Masson rebounded from an opening double bogey to make nine birdies for 5-under 67. She beat third-round leader Mi Hyang Lee, Minjee Lee and Solheim Cup teammate Karine Icher by a stroke, finishing at 16-under 272 at Whistle Bear.

Mi Hyang Lee had 71, Minjee Lee 68 and Icher 66.

Ariya Jutanugarn tied for fifth at 14 under in her bid to win three straight events for the second time this season. The second-ranked Jutanugarn made two late bogeys for 70.

CHAMPIONS: Carlos Franco rallied to win the Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary for his first tour victory. Three strokes behind defending champion Jeff Maggert entering the round, Franco shot his second straight 7-under 63 to beat Bernhard Langer (64) and Michael Allen (63) by two. Franco birdied the par-5 18th to finish at 18-under 192. Maggert shot 74 to tie for sixth at 10 under.

PGA EUROPE: Alex Noren sank a 20-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to beat Scott Hend in a playoff for the European Masters title in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. Noren had 5-under 65 to be tied at 17 under with Hend, the overnight leader who carded 66 on the Swiss Alps course.
