Scott leads Deutsche Bank Championship

Posted: Sunday, August 31, 2003

NORTON, Mass. Adam Scott played his final 10 holes at the Deutsche Bank Championship in 8-under par Saturday, topping it off with a 15-foot birdie putt for a 9-under 62 and a two-stroke lead over Vijay Singh.

The 23-year-old Aussie started his amazing run at the TPC of Boston with a 4-foot eagle on No. 18, and quickly surged past a foreign-dominated leaderboard to take the 36-hole lead for the first time in a PGA Tour event.

Scott was at 11-under 131.

BMW Open

NORD-EICHENRIED, Germany Robert Karlsson shot a 1-under-par 71 in the rain and wind, giving him a two-stroke lead after three rounds at the BMW Open.

Karlsson was at 16-under 200 but 16 players were within five strokes of the Swede, who won this tournament in 1997.

Champions Tour

ALOHA, Ore. Jim Ahern birdied three of the final four holes for a 4-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead after the third round of Jeld-Wen Tradition, the final major this season on the Champions Tour.

Ahern was at 14-under 202 after 54 holes heading into Sunday's final round at the Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club west of Portland.

LPGA Tour

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. Candie Kung played just well enough to keep her lead as Laura Davies and others closed the gap heading into the final round of the LPGA State Farm Classic.

After leading by four strokes through two rounds, Kung built her lead to five before stumbling. She finished the day with a 1-under 71 for a one-shot lead over Davies, a 20-time tour winner.

Kung started uncharacteristically strong, moving to 15 under through her fourth hole and taking a five-stroke lead. But she shot 1 over the rest of the day, while Davies shot a 6-under 66 and moved closer heading into Sunday's finale.

Hee-Won Han shot a 69 and is in third at 12 under, followed by Karen Stupples, whose 68 put her at 10 under.
