Posted: Sunday, October 21, 2001

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Jose Coceres of Argentina won the Saturday shootout at Disney, emerging from the pack with an 8-under-par 64 to take a three-stroke lead over Davis Love III in the National Car Rental Classic.

Six players had a share of the lead at some point during a blustery afternoon, but Coceres took control with a short birdie on the par-5 10th hole and finished at 18-under 198.

Love had a poor round striking the ball and still managed a 67. Another stroke back was Vijay Singh, who birdied the first four holes on the back nine to get back into the picture.

Eleven players are within six strokes of the lead, including Tiger Woods.

Woods got within three shots of the lead at one point and finished with a birdie for a 67 that put him at 203.

SBC Championship

SAN ANTONIO -- Bob Murphy shot a 6-under par 66 to grab a share of the lead in the Senior PGA's SBC Championship.

Murphy and opening-round leader Gary McCord were at 10-under 134 going into the final day of the 54-hole event at The Dominion Country Club.

Defending champion Doug Tewell, Bob Gilder and Bruce Fleisher were all one stroke back, followed by Jim Barker and Larry Nelson at 136.

Dunhill Links

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Fog, rain and wind caused long delays during the third round of the Dunhill Links Championship, setting up the possibility of a Monday finish.

By early afternoon, there had been only about two hours of play at the three courses -- Old Course, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns -- for the inaugural $5 million event.

Second-round leader Paul McGinley of Ireland, played only two holes of his third round at Carnoustie, remaining at 13 under par.

Brian Davis of England remained second at 11 under after two holes at Carnoustie. Tony Johnstone of Zimbabwe, even with David after two rounds, double-bogeyed the second hole at Carnoustie.
