Norman ahead at Senior British Open

SUNNINGDALE, England - Greg Norman shot a bogey-free 6-under 64 on Saturday to grab the lead by a stroke heading into the last round of the Senior British Open.

Norman was at 10-under 200, a stroke ahead of overnight leader Fred Funk (72) and Loren Roberts (67).

Tom Watson's hopes of improving on his runner-up spot in the British Open last week took a hit after a 70 that left him six shots behind Norman.

Watson's putter remained cold, despite an overnight grip change following similar problems on Friday.

'I had five three-putts. I wasted a good ball-striking day,' he said. 'I hit it very well and made absolutely nothing on the greens, although I did make a 60-footer (on the 13th hole) and a 30-footer (on the 5th).

'Otherwise, I was missing everything. Everything was right, everything pushed. Maybe I ought to aim left.

'I don't have very good speed control on these greens.'
