Jack Nicklaus took an eight-shot lead after three rounds of the Senior PGA Championship at Palm Beach Gardens, Fla..
Nicklaus led by five strokes before Saturday's play, saw his lead dwindle to one stroke over Jim Dent at the turn, then put himself in position to win for the fourth time in six tries among the 50-and-over set.
Moments after Nicklaus reached the turn, rain, wind and lightning swept over the PGA National Golf Club and play was held up for two hours. When play resumed, Nicklaus provided the electricity.
He finished with a 69 for a 201 total, 15 under par.
"I haven't won yet," Nicklaus said. "I'll prepare for tomorrow just like I would any other round. I'll try to play just as well as I can."
