FORT WORTH (AP) – Charlie Wi made a 32-foot birdie putt on the par-3 16th hole soon after a weather delay at Colonial, taking the lead after playing partner David Toms blew a seven-stroke advantage in the third round Saturday.
After Wi holed the birdie putt, Toms’ 16-foot par chance just missed for a two-stroke swing.
Wi finished with a 4-under 66 to get to 13 under, a stroke better than Toms (74) and four ahead of John Senden (70).
Toms built his huge lead with bogey-free 62s in the first two rounds. He opened with a birdie Saturday before three bogeys in a five-hole stretch.
Worse was a three-putt from 7 1/2 feet for double bogey at No. 14, where Wi chipped to 12 feet to save par right before a 1-hour, 20-minute delay.
