KAPALUA, Hawaii, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Lucas Glover shot a two-under-par 71 Saturday to hang on to his lead at the SBS Championship heading into the final round of the PGA season-opener in Hawaii.

Glover, the defending U.S. Open champion who won the SBS last year, has been atop the leader board for all three rounds at the windy Kapalua course and held off a late charge by Geoff Ogilvy on Saturday.

Glover birdied the 18th hole for a three-round score of 17-under 202, one stroke ahead of Ogilvy.

Ogilvy took the lead at the turn after back-to-back bogeys by Lucas and finished the round with a five-under 68. But Glover was able to find his putting stroke and birdied 14, 16 and the par-5 18th.

"I came back a little bit, but I hung in there and finished strong, so I'm pretty pleased with that," Glover said.

Martin Laird was in third place after Saturday's round with a 204. Ryan Moore was in fourth at 205.
