PALM HARBOR, Fla., March 16 (UPI) -- Kevin Streelman used a 6-under 65 Saturday to forge a first-place tie with Justin Leonard and George Coetzee after three rounds of the Tampa Bay Championship.

Streelman's effort was the low round of the day on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club.

It enabled him to finish 54 holes at 6-under-par 207, knotted atop the leaderboard with Leonard (67) and Coetzee (68).

The day's biggest move belonged to Jim Furyk, who fired a 4-under 67 to grab a share fourth place at minus-5 with Ben Kohles (69), Greg Chalmers (69) and Tag Ridings (70).

First- and second-round leader Shawn Stefani, meanwhile, tumbled into a five-way tie for eighth place at 4-under 209 with a disappointing round of 3-over 74.
