GOLF ROUNDUP

Singh Saves His One-Shot Lead

May 18, 2003|From Associated Press

Vijay Singh made a clutch par save on the 17th hole Saturday, maintaining his one-shot lead at the Byron Nelson Championship at Irving, Texas.

After a pair of 65s, Singh shot a one-under 69 Saturday, able to stay under par even after he flew the green on the 196-yard 17th hole and his ball buried in some nasty rough. He managed to pitch to seven feet and saved par.

Singh was at 11-under 199, one stroke ahead of Jeff Sluman, the first-round leader who had a 68 Saturday. Cameron Beckman and Luke Donald, who had an eagle out of the bunker at the 554-yard 16th, both had 67s and were tied at 201.
