Allenby, Parry lead NEC Invitational

SAMMAMISH, Wash. -- Robert Allenby's long eagle putt on the 18th hole came up one turn short Saturday, leaving him in a share of the lead, the same spot where he started a topsy-turvy round in the NEC Invitational.

Only now, he has a lot of company -- including Tiger Woods.

Allenby overcame an early double bogey for an even-par 71 at Sahalee Country Club, joining fellow Aussie Craig Parry (66) in the lead at 10-under 203 heading into the final round of the $5 million World Golf Championship event.

One stroke behind was golf's latest wild-and-crazy guy, Fred Funk, who found a new flock of fans in Seattle by holing a bunker shot on the 17th hole for a 68.

Woods was among the leaders until making bogey on his last two holes, but still managed a 67 and was two strokes behind in his bid to become the first player in 75 years to win the same event four years in a row.

Priestley released from hospital

INDIANAPOLIS -- Actor Jason Priestley was released Saturday from an Indianapolis hospital where he spent 12 days recovering from injuries sustained in a crash at Kentucky Speedway.

Priestley was released from Methodist Hospital late Saturday morning, hospital spokeswoman Penny Johnson said. She said she did not know where Priestley had been taken after his discharge.

The actor's doctors had said earlier in the week that he would soon be moved from the hospital to a physical rehabilitation center.

The 32-year-old former ''Beverly Hills 90210'' star was badly hurt Aug. 11 when his open-wheel car spun out of control at 180 mph and hit the wall nearly head-on during practice for the Infiniti Pro Series, a developmental circuit for the IRL.

The day after the crash, Priestley was moved from a Kentucky hospital to Methodist Hospital, where doctors repaired fractures on back and feet. They also operated on his injured nose and one of his eyes.

Doctors have said that Priestley is expected to make a full recovery.
