MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Brian Gay is doing his best to run away with the St. Jude Classic. Now he is 18 holes away from finishing off a wire-to-wire victory that would earn him a place in the U.S. Open.
He shot a second consecutive 4-under 66 Saturday to keep the lead by a stroke over Bryce Molder after the third round at the TPC Southwind.
Gay, who won at Hilton Head in April can earn an Open berth with a second win this year. He has just five bogeys this week, and his only one Saturday came on 18 after his second shot from a fairway bunker hit the water. That dropped him to 14-under 196.
