Milwaukee, Wisconsin:Australians Gavin Coles and Nick Flanagan shared the lead Saturday after the third round of the four million-dollar PGA Tour US Bank Championship.
Flanagan, who started the day tied with Sweden's Richard Johnson atop the leaderboard, posted a one-under-par 69 for an 11-under total of 199.
He was joined by Coles, who carded a two-under 68.
Canadian Jon Mills, George McNeill, Ken Duke and Johnson were tied for third at 10-under 200 on a crowded leaderboard.
Mills, who has a pair of Nationwide Tour victories on his resume, shot into contention with seven birdies and just one bogey in his six-under 64.
Chris Riley, Jason Gore, Patrick Sheehan, Brandt Jobe and Joe Ogilvie were at nine-under, with another group of 10 players at eight-under.
Ogilvie, the defending champion, bogeyed three of his first four holes, but had three birdies on the back nine and finished with a 68.
Coles had jumped up the leaderboard on Friday with an eight-under 62, which put him one off the lead going into the third round.
He started with two bogeys on a rainy day, steadied and picked up steam after the turn.
Coles drained a 15-footer for birdie at 10, and added back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13 before tapping in for birdie at 16.
"With 18 holes to go, it's always nice to be in front," said the 39-year-old Aussie. "I had a pretty horrendous start with the bad weather.
"It was coming down pretty heavy. But after the second, the weather sort of settled down a bit and it was pretty easy after that, I thought. The weather was not a nuisance, and the course was there for some birdies."
Flanagan bogeyed No.2 but regained the stroke at the next hole and picked up another at the the sixth.
After a bogey at nine and a birdie at 14, he fell one off the lead with a bogey at 17, before closing his round with a birdie - barely missing an eagle attempt that would have given him the outright lead.
"I knew 18 was a little bit of an easier opportunity for a birdie, and I hit a really good drive down there," he said. "I hit it as hard as I could and got it a long way down there."
