Triplett ties Mickelson at Hope Classic

LA QUINTA, Calif., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Kirk Triplett caught Phil Mickelson on Saturday and shares the lead heading into the final round of the Bob Hope Classic.

Triplett had an eagle and seven birdies at Indian Wells en route to a 9-under-par 63 and a four-day total of 26-under 262.

Playing Bermuda Dunes, Mickelson had a seemingly comfortable four-shot lead midway through the back nine. But the lefthander bogeyed the 16th hole just around the time Kenny Perry went eagle-eagle-birdie at La Quinta to get within a stroke.

Mickelson ended up shooting a 5-under 67, but Perry closed in with a 64.

Jay Haas, last year's runner-up, parlayed a bogey-free 5-under 67 into sole possession of fourth place at 264.

Ben Crane (68), Skip Kendall (66) and Danny Ellis (64) are tied for fifth, three shots off the lead.
