HUMBLE, Texas, March 30 (UPI) -- Bill Haas fired a 5-under-par 67 and Stewart Cink responded with a 4-under 68 Saturday, moving into a tie for the lead after three rounds of the Houston Open.

The pair finished 54 holes knotted at 11-under-par 205.

Haas is trying to become the second generation of his family to take the Houston event -- his father Jay won it in 1987 -- and will seek his fifth career title against Cink, who is looking for career win No. 7.

His last win was the 2009 British Open.

Falling into a third-place tie at minus-10 was second-round leader Steve Wheatcroft, who bogeyed the last hole en route to and even-par 72.

Ben Crane (67), first-round leader D.A. Points (71) and Jason Kokrak (71) joined him in third on the Tournament Course at Redstone Golf Club.

Louis Oosthuizen and Bud Cauley each fired a 7-under 65, turning in the low rounds of the day. They ended in a seventh-place tie at 9-under 207 with Keegan Bradley (67) and Angel Cabrera (69).
