FORT WORTH, Texas -- Nick Price shot a 4-under-par 66 Saturday to take a five-stroke advantage over three players after the third round of the Colonial.

The 45-year-old Price, seeking his first PGA Tour win since the 1998 FedEx St. Jude Classic, had a 10-under 200 total on the Colonial Country Club course.

Phil Tataurangi (66), Kenny Perry (69) and Steve Flesch (70) were tied for second at 5-under 205. Tom Watson (66), David Toms (64), Bob Tway (71) and Esteban Toledo (72), who shared the second-round lead with Price, are six strokes back.

Deutsche Bank Open

HEIDELBERG, Germany -- Tiger Woods shot a 5-under 67 to move within two strokes of leaders Colin Montgomerie and Alex Cejka after the second round of the Deutsche Bank Open.

Montgomerie shot a 68 and Cejka had a 70 for 10-under 134 totals on the St Leon-Rot course. Darren Clarke (68), Richard Green (67), Ian Woosnam (67) and Mark Pilkington (64) were 9 under. John Daly shot his second straight 73 to miss the cut by two strokes.

Asahi Ryokuken International

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- Scotland's Janice Moodie waited out a five-hour rain delay and overcame England's Laura Davies' quick start to take a three-stroke lead in the suspended third round of the Asahi Ryokuken International.

Moodie, at 11-under par, and Davies, at 8 under, are in the same threesome and had five holes remaining when play was called because of darkness at Mount Vintage Plantation.

Scotland's Catriona Matthew and South Korea's Grace Park were 7 under, Matthew through 15 holes and Park through 13. Sweden's Annika Sorenstam, seeking her fourth LPGA Tour victory of the year, was 6 under after 14 holes.

Instinet Classic

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Jim Thorpe shot a 3-under 69 in the rain-delayed second round of the Instinet Classic to take a one-stroke lead over John Jacobs.

Thorpe, seeking his second victory of the season, completed the round in fading light after the start of play was delayed for five hours by rain. He had a 10-under 134 total.

Jacobs, who lost a playoff to Thorpe late last month in The Tradition, birdied the final hole for a 70.

Japan's Isao Aoki and Allen Doyle were two strokes back at 8 under after 67s, and Hale Irwin and Mike Hill had 68s to reach 7 under on the TPC at Jasna Polana.
