Keegan Bradley hasn't gotten things right on the 18th hole at the Byron Nelson Championship, even when finally going left. The bogeys on the closing hole at TPC Four Seasons haven't cost him the lead yet.
Bradley bogeyed No. 18 for the third round in a row Saturday to finish with a 2-under 68 that kept him in the lead in Irving, Texas.
"(Sunday) is the day. Right down the middle," he said about that last hole. "I'm due!"
Bradley's 13-under 197 total gave him a one-shot lead over Sang-Moon Bae, who had his third straight 66. Tom Gillis was two back after a 67.
After going way right off the tee at 18 the first two days, Bradley smashed his drive Saturday down the left side toward the water. The ball stayed dry, but settled behind a large rock and forced him to punch back into the fairway. His approach settled on the front edge of the green, and he almost saved par -- the ball rolled just over the lip of the cup.
"I thought I made the putt," said Bradley, who has led after all three rounds. "But 5 on that hole from where I hit it off the tee is pretty good."
On Sunday, Bradley will be trying to win at TPC Four Seasons for the second time in three years. He got his first PGA Tour victory as a rookie at the Nelson two years ago.
European Tour: Graeme McDowell reached the Volvo World Match Play Championship semifinals with a 2-and-1 victory over Nicolas Colsaerts, the defending champion who took a penalty drop inside a restroom.
McDowell will face Branden Grace on the oceanside Thracian Cliffs course in Kavarna, Bulgaria. In the other semifinal Sunday, Thomas Aiken will meet Thongchai Jaidee.
Colsaerts's tee shot on the short par-4 10th flew into a hazard behind a public restroom in a brick building close to the green. Because of where the ball crossed the hazard line, officials ruled the penalty drop must be made within the restroom itself. But because it was considered an immovable obstruction he was then given free relief to play from outside and saved par to halve the hole.
LPGA Tour: Chella Choi shot a 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead over Jessica Korda and Anna Nordqvist, who broke the course record with a 61 in the Mobile Bay (Ala.) Classic. Choi twice made three straight birdies to move to 17-under 199 at The Crossings. Korda shot a 69.
