ENDICOTT, N.Y., July 17 (UPI) -- Jonathan Byrd
shot a four-under 68 on Saturday to maintain the lead after three rounds of the B.C. Open.
Byrd completed 54 holes at 16-under-par 200.
Ted Purdy, Tommy Tolles and Robert Gamez posted matching rounds at seven-under 65. That trio shares second place at 15-under-par 201 with John E. Morgan (68) and Notah Begay III (66).
Due to bad weather in the forecast, Sunday's tee times have been moved up. The players will be paired in threesomes and will tee off both the front and back nines.
Camilo Villegas stands alone in seventh place at 14-under-par 202 after a five-under 67 on Saturday. Neal Lancaster and Chris Smith are one stroke behind him at minus-13.
Stephen Allan fired an eight-under 64 to move to 12-under-par 204. He is joined there by Jason Bohn, Robin Freeman, Jim Gallagher, Jr., John Senden and Hidemichi Tanaka.
