SURREY, England, July 23 (UPI) -- Mark Calcavecchia birdied the 18th hole Saturday, allowing him to retain a share of the lead after three rounds of the Senior British Open.

The final birdie enabled Calcavecchia to manage an even-par 72 and share the 54-hole lead with David Frost and Russ Cochran.
