RENO, Nev. (AP) - J.J. Henry had an eagle for the third straight day and scored 14 points Saturday to take the third-round lead in the Reno-Tahoe Open.
John Daly and Justin Leonard were among more than a dozen players within striking distance in the PGA Tour's first modified Stableford scoring system event since 2006.
Henry had 36 points overall, three more than second-round leader Alexandre Rocha in the format that awards eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie and none for par. Players are docked a point for bogey and three points for anything worse.
John Mallinger was third at 32, followed by first-round leader Andres Romero with 31.
Daly had an eagle, four birdies and four bogeys to get into a tie for fifth with Bull Lunde and Gary Christian at 28. Leonard was next with 26.
