Lower regains PGA Tour lead at Silver-ado


Justin Lower birdied the final hole on Saturday to cap a three-under par 69 and seize the outright lead at Fortinet Championship, where he is in search of his first US PGA Tour title.

Lower, who barely kept his playing rights for the 2022-23 season, had five birdies and two bogeys at Silverado Resort in Napa, California, rolling in a four-foot birdie putt at the par-five finishing hole to give himself a one-shot lead on 13-under 203.

Lower had opened the tournament with a spar-kling 63 on Thursday, but on Friday slipped two shots behind second-round leaders Max Homa and Danny Willett. England’s 2016 Masters champion Willett and American Homa both carded even par 72s on Satur-day to share second on 204 — one stroke in front of South Korean An Byeong-hun.—AP
