Kevin Na settled for a 1-under 69 at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, taking a two-shot lead Saturday over a group that included local favorite Jordan Spieth and 2003 U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk.

Na recovered from a double bogey at the par-5 11th that cost him the lead, steadying himself over the final seven holes to reach 9 under. His 62 in the second round was his third at least that low over a span of six rounds at Colonial.

Spieth and Furyk, winless since 2015, both shot 68 and were among the group at 7 under along with C.T. Pan, who was tied with Na before bogeys on the final two holes. Pan settled for a 68 as well.

First-round leader Tony Finau (71) fell into the group at 7 under with a bogey on 18 after hitting his driver into the water.

SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP: Defending champion Paul Broadhurst waited out two storm delays to shoot a bogey-free third round Saturday and open a two-shot lead at the Senior PGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

The breaks in play didn't affect the 53-year-old from England, who finished with a 3-under 67 and moved to 6-under 204 for the $3.25 million major at Oak Hill's East Course. Broadhurst hasn't bogeyed in 38 consecutive holes.

Retief Goosen is second at 4 under after a 67. Ken Tanigawa is third at 3 under following a 66.

LPGA TOUR: Bronte Law birdied the par-4 18th Saturday for a 4-under 67 and a share of the lead in the Pure Silk Championship for the third straight round.

Nasa Hataoka matched Law at 13-under 200 at breezy Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, rebounding from a bogey on the par-4 14th with an eagle on the par-5 15th in a 65.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Bernd Wiesberger bogeyed a third hole to finish the third round and still led the Made in Denmark event by a shot on Saturday in Farso, Denmark.

Seeking a fifth European Tour title, Wiesberger shot a 4-under 67 at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, his lowest round of the year.

That was enough to give him a one-shot lead over Robert MacIntyre, who carded a 3-under 68.
