LAS VEGAS, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Webb Simpson recorded a 4-under 67 Saturday, holding onto a big lead after three rounds of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.

Simpson, who came into the day with a four-shot shot lead, maintained that advantage after Saturday's round, ending at 19-under 194 in a quest for his first PGA Tour win since the 2012 U.S. Open.

Jeff Overton (68) was third at 14-under while Jason Bohn (69) ended the day in fourth at 13-under.
