Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Mark Calcavecchia fired a 6-under 64 on
Saturday to grab a share of first place after three rounds of the Senior
Calcavecchia, who won last week's Montreal Championship, moved to 12-under 198
at Fox Chapel Golf Club. He is joined in first place by Joe Daley, who is
coming off a tie for fourth at the Senior PGA Championship and shot a 2-under
68 on Saturday.
"The last group's the best place to be," Calcavecchia said during a television
interview. "Everybody's in front of you, you know what you need to do."
Defending champion Fred Couples had led at the start of the third round, but
slipped into a share of third after managing a round of even-par 70, while
battling a sore back.
"My back's killing me," Couples said in a TV interview. "I just really
couldn't hit the ball."
Couples stayed at minus-11 and shares third with Tradition winner Tom Lehman,
who carded a 4-under 66.
