“I don’t see any reason why I can’t finish it off,” Calcavecchia said. After the way his week started, it was still hard to believe he was in this position. Coming off a missed cut at the Honda Classic, Calcavecchia opened with a 75 by taking 36putts, then packed his bags that evening expecting to miss the cut. But he tried out a new putter that he bought over the weekend and has been knocking in putts from everywhere. He has taken only 46 putts over the past two days, and he finished the third round strong. Calcavecchia hit a 3-iron into about 6 feet on the par-3 17th, then hit a sweeping hooking with a 7-iron out of a fairway bunker on the 18th and made a 20-foot birdie to tie the course record set by Jeff Sluman in the first round in 2004. LPGA: Meaghan Francella shot a 4-under 68 to take a two-stroke lead during the suspended second round of the MasterCard Classic in Huixquilucan, Mexico. European/Asian PGA: China’s Liang Wen-chong shot a 4-under 69 for a share of the third-round lead with England’s Gary Lockerbie in the Singapore Masters. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s a rare combination for him, so he had a hunch that Saturday would bring him a good round in the PODS Championship. He never could have imagined this. Calcavecchia made 10 birdies and tied the Copperhead course record at Innisbrook with a 9-under 62, going from the middle of the pack to a share of the lead in Palm Harbor, Fla., with Heath Slocum, who birdied the last hole for a 67. K.J. Choi shot 67 and was another shot behind.
