OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) — Chez Reavie birdied the par-5 18th hole Sunday morning to take a one-stroke lead over Anthony Kim after the third round of the Canadian Open.
Reavie was 2 under through 16 holes when darkness ended play Saturday night on the course saturated by more than 8 inches of rain in a week. He had a 25-foot putt from the fringe on No. 17 when he called it a day.
On Sunday morning, Reavie putted to 3 feet to set up a par on 17, then regained the lead with a tap-in birdie on the 502-yard closing hole. He finished with a 3-under 68 for a 16-under 197 total at soggy Glen Abbey.
Reavie played 33 holes in 13 under Friday, shooting 65-64 for a tournament-record matching 13-under 129 total and a three-stroke lead after the completion of the suspended second round Saturday morning.
The 23-year-old Kim, tied for 26th at 4 under through 15 holes when second-round play was suspended Friday night, went birdie-birdie-eagle Saturday morning for a 2-under 69, then added a bogey-free 64 in the third round to match Reavie at 15 under when play was suspended. Kim won the Wachovia Championship and AT&T National this year and is coming off a seventh-place tie in the British Open.
Scott McCarron had a 63 Saturday – the best round of the week – to get to 12 under. Steve Marino (67) also was 12 under, and Billy Mayfair (68) followed at 11 under.
Canadian star Mike Weir birdied four of the last five holes Saturday for 68 to join to Mark Calcavecchia (67), Sean O’Hair (67) and Nicolas Thompson (70) at 10 under. Two-time defending champion Jim Furyk was 8 under after a 67.
