Bradley Leads Doral

Sun., March 8, 1998

Michael Bradley battled a bad back and the swirling wind to take a twostroke lead over Stewart Cink in the Doral-Ryder Open in Miami.

Tiger Woods closed with a sensational shot from a fairway bunker to position himself perfectly for the final round, three shots back.

Bradley, who like Woods birdied the difficult final hole, was at 9-under-par 207 with Cink at 209. Mike Brisky, Woods and Billy Mayfair, who beat Woods in a playoff last week, were at 210.

Casey Martin survived some bad golf and almost getting run over by a golf cart beside the 18th green in a dramatic third round at the Greater Austin Open in Austin, Texas.

The disabled golfer, who sued and beat the PGA Tour for the right to ride in a cart, rallied from a two-bogey start to shoot a par 72 and was six shots off the lead.

Gene Sauers, who won two PGA Tour events, tied a course record with a 65 to claim a share of the lead.
