Golf » Veteran Toms among those atop crowded leaderboard.

First Published May 24 2014 08:15 pm • Last Updated May 24 2014 11:19 pm

Fort Worth, Texas • David Toms felt no need to even look at the Colonial leaderboard until noticing more people with cameras suddenly watching late in his third round.

"I didn’t feel like I was really relevant at the time to even look at it," Toms said. "I knew something was going on."

Three years after the last of his 13 PGA Tour victories, also at Hogan’s Alley, the 47-year-old Toms was back in contention. He wasn’t alone.

Toms shared the lead Saturday with Hideki Matsuyama, Chad Campbell and Chris Stroud at 7-under 203, the highest leading 54-hole score at Colonial since 1999. Among the other 13 players within two strokes of the lead were Adam Scott, the No. 1 player in the world, and Jimmy Walker, a three-time winner this season and No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings.

"It’s kind of jammed in there," Campbell said.

Kevin Chappell, whose early 7-under 63 was the low round of the day, moved from a tie for 60th after just making the cut to within one stroke of the lead.

Matsuyama, the 22-year-old from Japan with five wins at home, shot a bogey-free 64 Saturday. Toms had a 65, local resident Campbell shot 68 and Stroud finished bogey-birdie for a 69.

Walker was 6 under after a 69, and Scott was another stroke back after his bogey-free 66.

Campbell and Walker, playing together, were alone atop the leaderboard at 8 under before both bogeyed the 161-yard 13th hole.

Champions Tour

In Benton Harbor, Mich., Colin Montgomerie took the third-round lead in the Senior PGA Championship, making a winding, 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 3-under 68.

Trying to win his first senior major after failing to capture one of golf’s four biggest events on the regular tours, the 51-year-old Scot took a 7-under 206 total into the final round at Harbor Shores.

Bernhard Langer, the 56-year-old German star who has won twice this season on the Champions Tour, was a stroke back after a 70. He will play alongside Montgomerie for the fourth consecutive round Sunday.

Marco Dawson, Bart Bryant and Kiyoshi Murota were tied for third at 5 under. Dawson had a 64, the best round of the tournament. Bryant and Murota shot 70.

LPGA Tour

In Mobile, Ala., Anna Nordqvist moved into position for her third victory of the year, shooting her second straight 6-under 66 to take the third-round lead in the Airbus LPGA Classic.

The 26-year-old Swede, the winner in Thailand and Carlsbad, had a 16-under 200 total on The Crossings course.
