FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Matt Kuchar made a 12-foot birdie putt at the 16th hole to regain the lead near the end of a long Saturday at Colonial, and led four players by a stroke after three rounds.
Kuchar had a 1-under 69 that included some near misses and a nice par save at No. 17 to get to 11-under 199. Graham DeLaet, Boo Weekley, Chris Stroud and Matt Every were tied for second.
When the second round was suspended Friday night because of an approaching storm, Kuchar had just hit his tee shot at the par-3 16th. He resumed there at 7:13 a.m. Saturday with a two-putt from about 40 feet. He made three quick pars to keep his one-stroke lead after two rounds, then played in the last group that finished just after 5 p.m.
