The Open champion Tom Lehman shot a six-under-par 64 yesterday to take a nine-stroke lead into the final round of the US Tour Championship at the Southern Hills Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Lehman, who started with a 66 and 67, finished with a 13-under 197.

Brad Faxon and Fiji's Vijay Singh are closest behind. Victory for Lehman would win him the PGA Player of the Year award and the Vardon Trophy for the lowest-scoring average, while he would also top the moneywinners' list as long as Phil Mickelson (tied for seventh) finishes no closer than fourth.
