Joe Durant shot a bogey-free 66 and is tied for third with Jeff Sluman at 8-under 136.

Doug Garwood, who started on the back nine, made a run at a 59 but finished bogey-double, bogey for a 65. He was 10-under through 14 holes.

Garwood went to college at Fresno State with Kevin Sutherland, the only player to shoot 59 on the Champions tour.

After a 68 today, Canada’s Stephen Ames sits T18 at 5-under 139 heading to Sunday’s final round. Compatriot Rod Spittle had a 70 and is T39 (143).
