Brown, Smith share Puerto Rico lead
Americans Scott Brown and Chris Smith are tied at the top of the leaderboard ahead of the final round of the Puerto Rico Open in Rio Grande on Sunday.
They are one shot clear of the field on six under par, with fellow American Jon Curran and Argentinean Emiliano Grillo placed second.
Brown enjoyed a solid opening nine as he picked-up birdies at the second, fifth and ninth holes to make the turn in 33 shots.
He was equally solid on the back-nine where he carded seven before snatching birdies at the par-four 17th and par-five 18th to finish the third round with a five-under-par 67.
Smith had a slight setback on his opening hole which he bogeyed, but got back on track by picking up shots in three of the next four holes.
Successive birdies at the ninth and 10th further strengthened his position but a dropped shot at the 11th stalled his progress before he made amends with another birdie at the 13th to record a four-under-par 68.
Overnight leader Alex Cejka of Germany is one of five players two shots behind the leaders on four under par after a third-round 75 which included a double bogey on the 18th.
England’s Greg Owen and two-time major winner John Daly are amongst eight players on two under, while former world number one David Duval is level par after a third-round 72 to follow a 74 on Friday.
