GRAND BLANC, Mich., June 28 (UPI) -- Daniel Chopra of Sweden posted a 4-under 68 Saturday to hold a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the Buick Open, which is missing most of the top golfers.

Chopra completed 54 holes at 16-under-200. The Swede won for the second time on the PGA Tour this year at the Mercedes-Benz Championship.

Bubba Watson also had a 68 to move into a tie for second place at 14-under 202 with Woody Austin (69) and Dudley Hart (70).

Second-round leader Bo Van Pelt turned in a 1-over 73 Saturday and dropped into a share of fifth place at 13-under 203 with Kenny Perry (67).

Chopra and Hart were tied for the lead heading to the last hole but Chopra closed with a birdie while Hart had to settle for a bogey.
