"[I’m] not really worrying about what position I’m in," Furyk said about his Sunday approach. "Not looking at the leaderboard too much. Going out there and trying to attack the golf course the same way I have the first three days. I noticed there aren’t many leaderboards on the course, that might be a good thing."

Coming off a final-round 65 in a fourth-place finish last week in the British Open last Sunday, Furyk has had only one bogey — on the fourth hole of the first round — at Royal Montreal. He leads the field in greens in regulation, hitting 45 of 54 greens, and his tied for third in fairways hit at 33 of 42.

South Africa’s Tim Clark was second after a 64 on the tree-lined Blue Course.

"The guys that are out there who have played well for three days are all capable," Furyk said. "Timmy Clark’s got a lot of experience. Kyle’s won before."

Clark had a birdie-eagle start.

"It’s always great to get off to a good start," Clark said. "Saturdays are normally the toughest day to score on, so you dream of a start like that."

He tied for fifth two weeks ago in the John Deere Classic, helping to turn around a season that included a problem with his left elbow.

"Right now I feel good and I am able to swing how I want to," Clark said. "Three months ago I started to hit the ball good again, but I just wasn’t scoring. Finally, the last few tournaments, I’ve started to score."

Kyle Stanley had a 68 to reach 10 under, and Jamie Lovemark was another stroke back after a 67.

Graham DeLaet, trying to become the first Canadian winner in the event in 60 years, was tied for fifth at 8 under after a 70.

Senior British Open

In Bridgend, Wales, Bernhard Langer stretched his lead to eight strokes in the Senior British Open, shooting a 3-under 68 at Royal Porthcawl to reach 14-under 199.

The 56-year-old German matched the Champions Tour record for the largest 54-hole lead in a 72-hole event set by Jack Nicklaus in the 1991 Senior PGA. At 14 under, Langer also tied the tournament 54-hole record set by Carl Mason at 14-under 196 in 2003 at Turnberry.

International Crown

In Owings Mills, Md., Inbee Park and So Yeon Ryu both birdied the first playoff hole and South Korea eliminated the top-seeded United States and earned a wild-card berth in the International Crown finale. The South Koreans will join Spain, Thailand, Japan and Sweden on Sunday in a duel for title.

After the American team of Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson beat sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn 3 and 2 in better-ball play, Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum and Onnarin Sattayabanphot edged the team of Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis 1-up to leave the U.S. in third place in Pool A.
