IRVING, Texas — Louis Oosthuizen birdied four of the last five holes for a 6-under 64 and a share of the third-round lead with Brendon Todd on Saturday in the Byron Nelson Championship.


Oosthuizen had the low round of the day after recovering from bogeys on two of the first four holes. The 2010 British Open winner is fighting lingering back and neck issues.


Todd had a 68, making 12 consecutive pars before holing a 4-foot birdie at No. 18 to match Oosthuizen at 10-under 200.


Mike Weir, James Hahn and Gary Woodland were a stroke back.


Weir, the 2003 Masters champion who hasn’t a top-25 finish since 2010 when he had an elbow injury, shot 67 while missing some makeable putts down the stretch. Hahn’s 65 included five birdies in a row on the back nine, and Woodland shot 66 with a double bogey at No. 7.


Kingsmill Championship


WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — Lizette Salas moved into position for her first LPGA Tour victory, playing 25 holes in 6-under par to take a three-stroke lead in the Kingsmill Championship.


The 24-year-old former Southern California player shot a 3-under 68 in the completion of the rain-delayed second round and birdied three of the last five holes in the afternoon for a season-best 65. She had a 13-under 200 total on Kingsmill Resort’s River Course.


South Korea’s Hee Young Park, the second-round leader, was second. She bogeyed No. 18 for a 69.


Second-ranked Stacy Lewis and No. 3 Lydia Ko, both trying to take the top spot in the world from Inbee Park, were five strokes back along with Katherine Kirk. Lewis shot 70, Ko 67, and Kirk 68.


Coming off a victory two weeks ago in the North Texas LPGA Shootout, Lewis would jump to No. 1 with a victory or a solo second-place finish, as long as Ko doesn’t win. Ko needs a victory to move to No. 1. Inbee Park is skipping the tournament.


Regions Tradition


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Kenny Perry shot a 3-under 69 on Saturday at Shoal Creek to take a one-stroke lead over John Inman after the third round of the Regions Tradition.


Perry had a 7-under 209 total. He had four birdies and bogeyed No. 16.


Inman, a two-time PGA Tour winner who coached at the University of North Carolina, shot a 66 after two even-par rounds. He had seven birdies before his first slip-up, a bogey on No. 16.


Steve Elkington (71), second-round leader Mark Calcavecchia (74), Jay Haas (73), John Cook (71), Jeff Maggert (69), Olin Browne (72) and Tom Pernice Jr. (70) were 4 under.
