Calimesa: Japan's Joe Ozaki shot a 1-over 73 to take a two-stroke lead over six players after the third round of the Champions Tour National Qualifying Tournament on Friday. He had an even-par 216 total on the PGA of Southern California Golf Club course. "It was very tough playing today with the wind. It was harder than yesterday. I'm very tired," said Ozaki, a 32-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour. "The short putts were hard and playing downwind was also difficult. But I'm very pleased to be at even-par after three rounds." Kirk Hanefeld (68), Rick Karbowski (70), Scott Masingill (72), Brad Fabel (72), Canada's Norm Jarvis (70) and England's Bill Longmuir (74) were tied at 2 over. The top seven players in the six-round tournament will earn full 2006 exemptions, while the next eight will gain partial exemptions. (AP)
