Funk leads JELD-WEN Tradition

Fred Funk moved into position for his first major victory on the Champions Tour, shooting a bogey-free 7-under 65 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Jay Haas after the third round of the JELD-WEN Tradition.
The 52-year-old Funk, the winner of the season-opening MasterCard Championship in Hawaii, had a 16-under 200 total on the Crosswater Club course.
Haas, the Senior PGA Championship winner in May, shot a 66. Tim Simpson (69) was 13 under, and Tom Watson (68), Joe Ozaki (64), Scott Hoch (66) and Mike Goodes (69) were another stroke back. Scott Simpson (67) and Bernhard Langer (72) were 10 under.
Funk, an eight-time champion on the PGA Tour and three-time winner on the 50-and-over tour, had four birdies in a front-nine 32 and came home in 33 with birdies on three of the last four holes.
