Chapman, Blake lead at Legends of Golf

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Roger Chapman and Jay Don Blake teamed to shoot 11-under 61 on Saturday and take a one-stroke lead in the Champions Tour’s Legends of Golf.


Chapman and Blake were 17 under. The teams of Bernhard Langer-Tom Lehman, Brad Faxon-Jeff Sluman, Scott Hoch-Jim Gallagher Jr., Craig Stadler-Kirk Triplett and Brad Faxon-Jeff Sluman were tied for second.

“The way it’s all bunched up, it’s all set up for somebody to shoot really low,” Lehman said. “Like a 60. Or a 59.”

The winning teams have shot a 10-under 62 or better in the final round each of the past four years.

LPGA TOUR: In Irving, Texas, Carlota Ciganda shot 5-under 66 to take a two-stroke lead over the world’s No. 1 player and an LPGA Tour rookie into the final round of the inaugural North Texas Shootout.

Ciganda was at 11-under 202 after her second 66 of the week.

Top-ranked Inbee Park finished her 67 with consecutive birdies. Caroline Masson, the leader after each of the first two rounds, recovered from an opening double bogey for 69.

EUROPEAN TOUR: In Seoul, South Korea, Alex Noren took a one-stroke lead in the Ballantine’s Championship, competing 5-under 67 in the rain-delayed second round and shooting 69 in the third.

Noren had a 9-under 207 total on the Blackstone course. The tournament is sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.

WEB.COM TOUR: In Valdosta, Ga., Will Wilcox posted a course-record 9-under 63 to take a seven-shot lead at the South Georgia Classic.

Wilcox is at 16-under 200 at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club.

Aiken’s Kevin Kisner is tied for 45th after 73.
