Glover takes lead at Shriners


Lucas Glover is on track to end his five-year wait for a PGA Tour victory after earning a one-stroke lead at the end of third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

American Glover was almost flawless as he carded a six-under-par 65 to climb atop the leaderboard in Las Vegas on Saturday, having started the day in a tie for eighth.

Without a win since taking out the Wells Fargo Championship in 2011, the 2009 U.S. Open champion had five birdies and an eagle, while only dropping one shot to leapfrog overnight leader Rod Pampling at 15 under.

One-stroke lead when he teed off, Australian Pampling failed to post a score in the 60s for the first time in the tournament following an even-par 70.

Pampling had three birdies and as many bogeys in a mixed bag, ending the penultimate round alongside Brooks Koepka.

Koepka was second to Pampling in round two and the Canadian remains in the runners-up position thanks to his one-under-par 70.

His round featured some impressive birdies, six in total.

Russell Henley (63) and Geoff Ogilvy (66) are two shots off the pace at 13 under.

A stroke further back is Scott Piercy (65), as well as Harris English (67), Adam Hadwin (67), Charles Howell III (67), Pat Perez (69) and James Hahn (69).
