Luke Donald takes two-stroke lead in RBC Heritage tournament

Luke Donald shot a 66 to take a two-stroke lead over John Huh after three rounds of the RBC Heritage on Saturday in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

Donald has done just about everything on Harbour Town Golf Links the past five years — except win. He lost in a playoff to Brandt Snedeker here in 2011, part of a run of four top-three finishes since 2009. Donald had an eagle and six birdies to finish at eight-under-par 205 and carry the lead into Sunday here for the second time in that stretch.

Huh shot a 68 and was at 6 under.

Major champions Charl Schwartzel (68) and Jim Furyk (71), Nicholas Thompson (68) and Ben Martin (71) were tied for third at 5 under.

Matt Kuchar, ranked sixth in the world, shot 70 as part of a group of five golfers another shot back at 4 under.

Angela Stanford led the Lotte Championship by four strokes heading into Saturday’s final round at Kapolei, Hawaii, after she shot a five-under 67. Michelle Wie and Hyo Joo Kim were tied at nine under.

Miguel Angel Jimenez shot a 70 to lead by one stroke at nine-under 135 after two days of the Champions Tour’s Greater Gwinnett Championship at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Ga. Bernhard Langer (68) is one stroke back and Fred Couples (68) is two back. Langer was tied with Jimenez for the lead at eight under entering the final hole Saturday. Jimenez had a birdie on No. 18. Langer missed putts for eagle and birdie before settling for par.

Lee Westwood’s four-shot lead was trimmed to one going into the final round of the Malaysian Open at Kuala Lumpur. Westwood shot a 71 for a three-round total of 14-under 202 and is one shot ahead of English compatriot Andy Sullivan, who had a 66.
