BLAINE, Minn., July 19 (UPI) -- R.W. Eaks shot a 9-under 63 Saturday to take a three-stroke lead going into the final round of the seniors 3M Championship.
Eaks, who got both of his Champions Tour wins last season, was 16-under 128 following a rain-delayed second round.
Bernhard Langer (66) was the only other player within five shots of Eaks at 11-under 133.
Eaks was not among three co-leaders when play was suspended around 2:45 p.m. local time as a line of thunderstorms rolled through the area. After a delay of nearly three hours he started taking control and played the closing 10 holes at 6-under par.
