Jason Gore takes two shot lead

Farmington:

American Jason Gore will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the 84 Lumber Classic in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Gore shot a 5-under-par 67 on Saturday to move to 12-under par. Compatriots Craig Barlow and Tag Ridings, Sweden's Carl Pettersson, Paraguay's Carlos Franco and Australian Rod Pampling are tied for second at 10-under. Craig Barlow is one of five players tied for second, two shots off the pace, but he carded a 2-under-par 70, and lost ground to Gore. Gore moved to 11-under when he holed a birdie putt from near the fringe of the 15th green. The 31-year-old American finished the day at 12-under after a round of 67, giving himself a great chance of clinching his first PGA Tour title. Gore has never finished higher than a tie for 18th-place in a PGA Tour event. Rod Pampling is among the group of five tied for second. The Australian showed good form on the greens in his 3-under-par round of 69. Sweden's Carl Pettersson joined the tie for second with a round of 70. Pettersson came perilously close to going one shot better when his eagle putt at the 17th hole rolled along the lip and out. (AP)
