TIMONIUM, Md., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Tom Watson increased his lead to four strokes Saturday with a course record-tying 6-under 64 at the Senior Players Championship.

Watson, trying to win this senior major for the first time, had his second straight bogey-free round and moved to 12-under 198 after three rounds.

"He put us pretty far back. I think we're going to have to go all-out tomorrow," said Loren Roberts, who was tied for second place after shooting a 65. John Cook (65) and Mark Wiebe (66) joined Roberts at 8-under 202 and Jay Haas (67) was at 203.

Phil Blackmar also had a 64 Saturday to move into a share of sixth place with Morris Hatalsky (66) at 205.

Watson and Blackmar tied the course record set by Tom McKnight in 2007 and matched by Jeff Sluman last year.
