Dredge leads Irish Open by one shot

LIMERICK, Ireland, May 17 (UPI) -- Bradley Dredge shot 6-under-par 66 in Saturday's third round for a one-stroke advantage at the Irish Open golf tournament in Limerick, Ireland.

In an up-and-down day, the Englishman started with a bogey at the first hole, recorded six consecutive pars and mixed in five birdies for a 54-hole total of 9-under 207, one-shot better than compatriot Richard Finch (65).

In 2007, Dredge lost this event to Ireland native Padraig Harrington in a playoff.

"I would love to go out tomorrow and see things going my way," Dredge said. "I certainly don't want to go into a playoff with an Irishman, let's put it that way!"

At 7-under 209, England's Lee Westwood is alone in third place, while Sweden's Robert Karlsson (69), David Frost (66) of South Africa and Chile's Felipe Aguilar (67) share fourth place at 6-under 210.
