Michael Allen's lead down to two at U.S. Senior Open

Kenny Perry and Fred Funk are making charges in the U.S. Senior Open at Omaha, Neb., each pulling within two shots of leader Michael Allen with one round to go.

Perry, going for a second straight win in a senior major, shot 6-under-par 64 to match Corey Pavin for the low round on Saturday at Omaha Country Club. Funk shot 67 after making a long birdie putt on No. 18.

Allen, who shot a 63 on Friday, ballooned to a 2-over 72. He started the day with a 5-stroke advantage over Rocco Mediate. It was the largest lead after 36 holes in the tournament's 34-year history.

Allen is at 8-under 202 for the tournament. Pavin is two shots behind Perry and Funk and four behind Allen.

Mediate faded with bogeys on four of five holes in the middle of his round and sits five shots back after a 72.

Summerhays grabs 2-shot lead at John Deere Classic

Summerhays notched 10 birdies while matching the lowest third-round score in tournament history.

Canadian David Hearn (64) is second at 17 under. Defending champion Zach Johnson held a share of the lead after each of the first two rounds, but he's now alone in third after shooting a 67.

South Korea's Hee Young Park shot a career-best 61 to move into the lead after the third round at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic at Waterloo, Ontario.

Park was 10 under for the round and 20-under 193 overall, one stroke better than American Angela Stanford and two shots ahead of Scotland's Catriona Matthew.

Park nearly chipped in on the 18th hole for an eagle before tapping in a short putt for her sixth birdie on the back nine.

"I finished really well, finished (with) the birdie, so it's going to be fun tomorrow," she said.

Matthew (68) started the day with a three-shot lead on Stanford (64) but fell back with a double-bogey on the par-3 12th. She followed with a birdie and got another stroke back with a birdie on No. 18.
