HOUSTON, April 3 (UPI) -- Anthony Kim fired a three-under 69 Saturday, tying second-round leader Bryce Molder atop the Houston Open leaderboard after three rounds.

Both golfers sported 10-under 206s and were two strokes ahead of Vaughn Taylor (70) and Joe Ogilvie (71) at the Tournament Course at Redstone Golf Club in Houston.

Kim and Molder finished in knotted for first after both made exciting par saves on the 18th hole. Kim landed in the fairway but his approach shot barely avoided a water hazard and stopped 90 feet from the stick. His birdie putt try when seven feet past the hole, but holed the comebacker for par.

Molder, meanwhile, drove into the water on 18, and after his penalty drop, converted a 14-foot putt to save par and stay atop the leaderboard with Kim.

Lee Westwood (72), Jeff Maggert (70) and Graham DeLaet (71) were tied for fifth place at seven-under 209.
