SUNRIVER, Ore., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- David Edwards
and Mark McNulty
shared the lead after Saturday's third round of The Tradition at Sunriver, Ore., the Champions Tour's fourth major of 2007.
Edwards, the second-round leader, had an even-par 72, while McNulty shot a 2-under 70. They finished 54 holes at 12-under-par 204.
D.A. Weibring, who won the 3M Championship two weeks ago, shot a 4-under 68 and is in third place.
Tom Watson (67), the Senior British Open Champion, is tied for fourth place with Tom Kite (68) at 9-under 207.
"You play yourself into position and then hope things go your way," said Edwards. "You can't be on too much of an emotional roller-coaster out here."
Neither co-leader has won a major championship on the Champions Tour.
McNulty owns five wins -- all coming in 2004 and 2005, his first two years on tour. Edwards' only tour victory came last year at the 3M Championship.
R.W. Eaks (67) and Keith Fergus (72) are tied for sixth at 208. Chip Beck (68), Loren Roberts (69) and Morris Hatalsky (71) share eighth at 210.
