If Phil Mickelson is going to make it two-for-two on the Champions Tour, he’s going to have to run down Mike Weir on Sunday at the Dominion Energy Charity Classic.
Weir will take a three-shot lead into Sunday’s final round thanks to a 63 Saturday afternoon that got him to 13-under par, three better than Michelson who shot 66 after a morning 68.
The field got in 36 holes on Saturday after the scheduled first round on Friday was rained out at the Country Club of Richmond.
Weir (68-63) and Mickelson (68-66) are the only two players in double digits under par. Retief Goosen (68-68) and Brandt Jobe (68-68) will start the final 18 five back of Weir.
Bernhard Langer was in at seven-under, Ernie Els, six-under.
Matt Wallace Leads Scottish Championship By Three:
England’s Matt Wallace birdied his final two holes Saturday at the Fairmont Links for a closing 66 and will take a three-shot lead into the final 18.
Wallace’s third round 66 got him to a whopping 18-under par, three clear of fellow countryman Garrick Porteous, who had a 66 of his own to post 15-under.
First round leader Adrian Otaegui kept himself in contention with a 70 and was alone in third at 14-under followed by Sean Crocker (67) at 13-under par.
