SILVIS, Ill. (AP) – Brian Harman had two eagles in a 6-under 65 on Saturday that gave him a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the John Deere Classic.
Harman’s solid performance got him to 17-under 196 for the tournament at TPC Deere Run. Three-time winner Steve Stricker is alone in second, one stroke better than Scott Brown heading into the final round.
Tim Clark, Jerry Kelly, William McGirt and 2012 champion Zach Johnson are three back at 14-under 199. Clark shot a 64 to move into contention.
“I had a great day” Harmon said afterward. “I struck the ball beautifully.” “I’m just looking forward to tomorrow. Nothing’s mine, obviously, you know. 54 hole lead. I’d rather be leading after 54 than not leading after 54. But it’s a 72 hole golf tournament.”
Final round is on Sunday
