CONOVER, N.C. (AP) - Jay Haas and Nick Price shared the lead at the Greater Hickory Classic on Saturday, but 31 players were within six strokes of the leaders going into the final round at the Champions Tour event.
Haas, the 2005 winner, and Price are at 11-under 133 after two\ rounds at Rock Barn Golf and Spa's Robert Trent Jones course.
Haas shot a 1-under 71, while Price - a three-time majors winner on the PGA Tour - vaulted into contention with a 5-under 67.
Gil Morgan (70), who trailed Haas by three strokes after Friday's round, slid into a tie for third at 135 with Andy Bean (68) and Russ Cochran (68).
Sunday's final-day field will be the closest in the tournament's seven-year history. The previous best was 17 players, set at the inaugural event in 2003 won by Craig Stadler.
