Mike Reid overcame a slow start for a 6-under-par 66 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Paul Stankowski after three rounds of the Hawaiian Open in Honolulu.
After 54 holes, Reid, a 20-year veteran on the PGA Tour who last won in 1988, was at 16-under 200. Stankowski charged into second with a 64 on an up-and-down day.
Reid was down by as many as three strokes early in the round after bogeying the third and fourth holes. But that was it for over-par scores for the day. He birdied three par-5s and two par-3s as well as the par-4 14th.
Tiger Woods, whose rounds have gotten progressively worse in the Australian Masters, trails Peter O’Malley of Australia by six strokes going into today’s final round in Melbourne.
Woods didn’t capitalize much on O’Malley’s par 73 in the third round over the difficult Huntingdale course. He shot a 72, after rounds of 68 and 70.
Zimbabwean Nick Price, seeking his first victory in 14 months, surged to a five-stroke lead after three rounds of the Dimension Data pro-am golf tournament in Sun City, South Africa.
