PGA Tour Champions — Paul McGinley is tied for 45th entering the final round of the DICK's Sporting Goods Open in New York.
The 50-year old Dubliner, who will open the new Paul McGinley Golf Academy at Mount Juliet Estate next month, added a one-over 73 to his opening 70 and trails Scott McCarron and Kevin Sutherland by 11 strokes on one-under par.
McCarron had two eagles in an 11-under 61 on Saturday to join Sutherland in the lead at 12-under 132 at En-Joie.
McCarron, 52, has had four wins on PGA Tour Champions, winning the Allianz Championship in February and a major at the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship in July. He won three times on the PGA TOUR.
Joey Sindelar, from nearby Horseheads, shot his second straight 67 to join Jerry Smith (67) and Corey Pavin (68) at 10 under. Sindelar won the PGA TOUR's B.C. Open in 1985 and 1987 at En-Joie.
"This is one of the things I wait for every single year," Sindelar said. "A lot of people with a lot of encouragement."
Bernhard Langer. 59, was nine-under after a 66 and chasing his fifth win of a season that has brought him three of the five major championships.
Colin Montgomerie also was in the group at nine under after a 69.
