Madison, Miss. • Nicholas Thompson and Daniel Summerhays are tied for the lead going into the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Summerhays waited out a rain delay of 1 hour, 17 minutes before making his final 19-foot putt for birdie, finishing with a 3-under 69 on Saturday at Annandale Golf Club. He also led last week going into the final round of the John Deere Classic before finishing fourth.
Thompson bogeyed his first hole in the third round, but was nearly flawless after that with a 65 to reach 17 under. Thompson is trying for his first PGA Tour win and would join sister Lexi as only the third brother-sister combo to win on the LPGA and PGA tours.
Chad Campbell, Cameron Beckman, Woody Austin and Kyle Reifers are two strokes back.
Spain's Beatriz Recari birdied the two closing par 5s to catch Paula Creamer atop the leaderboard through 54 holes Saturday in the Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio.
Recari, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour, matched Creamer's 4-under 67. Both are at 12-under 201.
Creamer, who won in 2008 when the tournament was known as the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, led by as many as two shots before Recari's surge.
Nicholas Thompson -17
Daniel Summerhays -17
Chad Campbell -15
Cameron Beckman -15
Kyle Reifers -15
Woody Austin -15
