IRVING, Texas — Louis Oosthuizen birdied four of the last five holes for a 6-under-par 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 had a top-25 finish since 2010, shot 67 while missing some makable 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.

Former Husky Alex Prugh (72) was tied for 52nd at even-par 210. Michael Putnam (71) of University Place was 1 over. Kyle Stanley (76) from Gig Harbor was 6 over.

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

Perry is seeking his third Champions Tour major title after winning the Senior Players Championship and U.S. Senior Open in consecutive tour starts last year.

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

Seattle native Fred Couples (73) was 8 over. Rick Fehr (71) of Redmond was 12 over.

Jimin Kang (74), a graduate of King’s High School in Shoreline, was 3 over. Former Husky Louise Friberg (73) was 4 over.
