Lane surges into lead with course-record 65

May 12, 2002


— England's Barry Lane shot a course-record 7-under-par 65 Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the Benson and Hedges International.

Lane played the front nine of The Belfry's Brabazon Course, the site of the Ryder Cup matches in September, in 30 strokes, making four birdies and an eagle. Lane, 40, broke the previous record of 66, which was held by six players. He had a three-round total of 10-under-par 206.

England's Greg Owen shot a 70 and was two strokes off the lead. Angel Cabrera of Argentina (68) and Peter Baker of England (70) shared third place, three shots behind Lane.

John Daly had four bogeys and a double bogey on his first 11 holes and slipped seven shots back after a 74.

Colin Montgomerie, in a tie for the lead after two rounds, shot a 73 and was in a five-way tie for sixth place at 211.
