HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C., April 18 (UPI) -- Brian Gay widened his lead to three strokes at the PGA Verizon Heritage with a 4-under 67 in Saturday's third round at Hilton Head, S.C.

"I feel great. I look forward to (the final round)," said Gay, who got his first PGA Tour victory at last year's Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico. "I just have to keep hitting good shots."

Tim Wilkinson shot a 6-under 65 to move into second place at 10-under 203. Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen (69) was third at 204.

Former British Open winner Todd Hamilton (71) was at 205 and five-time Heritage winner Davis Love III (69) shared fifth place with Briny Baird (65) at 206.

Gay, 37, has strung together rounds of 67-66-67 to take only his third 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour.
