Perry takes lead at Milwaukee Open

MILWAUKEE, July 12 (UPI) -- Kenny Perry shot a 4-under-par 66 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over six other golfers after three rounds of the $3.5 million Milwaukee Open.

Jay Don Blake, the leader after the first two rounds, settled for a 71 and is part of the pack right behind Perry that includes Brenden Pappas, Heath Slocum, Steve Allan, Patrick Sheehan and Jerry Kelly.


Perry, 42, is playing in his first tournament since his three-start run that included consecutive wins at the Colonial and Memorial and a tie for third at the U.S. Open. He already has earned $2.9 million, nearly $1 million more than the career high he set last year.

Friday's round was played in swirling winds and was delayed by rain, Saturday was played in more tranquil conditions.

Pappas had the best round of the day, a bogey-free 63.
