PALM COAST, Fla.(AP) Michael Letzig birdied three of the final six holes Saturday for a 2-under 70 that gave him the lead in the Ginn sur Mer Classic when Ryan Palmer found water on the final hole.

Letzig, who shared the first-round lead at the Ginn Ocean Hammock Resort, finished off his run of birdies with a 7-foot putt on the par-5 18th that put him at 7-under 209.

He was one shot ahead of Kenneth Ferrie (67), John Huston (70) and Palmer, who had to scramble for a bogey on the 18th after hitting his second shot into the water. Palmer, who was at 9 under through 14 holes, bogeyed three of his last four holes for a 72.

David Duval, who was within two shots of the lead going into the third round, took a double bogey on the third round and never got anything going on his way to a 74, leaving him in a tie for 14th.

Ferrie, Huston and Palmer all are outside the top 125 on the money list with only two tournaments left on the PGA Tour.
