Barham takes 3-stroke lead at Austian Open

OBERWALTERSDORF, Austria (AP) — Benn Barham shot 4-under 67 Saturday to take a three-stroke lead over Soren Hansen after three rounds of the Austrian Open.

The 33-year-old Englishman had six birdies. He had a double-bogey on the par-3 seventh hole to finish at 17-under 196.

``I was pretty solid today. I hit the shots I wanted to hit,'' said Barham, who added the wind made play difficult.

Hansen had six birdies for a 65. Richard Green, who won the event in 2007, shot a 69. He bogeyed the second and 14th holes to drop to third, trailing Barham by four strokes.

Scott Drummond (72) had four bogeys and dropped eight shots behind the leader.
