Curtis Holds Texas Open Lead Heading Into Finale

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Ben Curtis remained in position for his first PGA Tour victory since 2006 despite his first stumbles at the Texas Open, shooting a 1-over 73 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead into the final round.

Curtis, who climbed atop the leaderboard with two bogey-free rounds, had a 9-under 207 total on TPC San Antonio’s Oaks Course.

Matt Every was second after a 73 in a bid for his first PGA Tour victory. Mayakoba winner John Huh (67), Seung-Yui Noh (68) and Charlie Wi (71) followed at 4 under.
Curtis preserved his lead despite two double bogeys, including one on No. 8 that had the former British Open champion hitting from a neighboring fairway. He rallied with four birdies to hold off the pack.
