RUSSELL Henley and Scott Langley ended Saturday’s third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii in a tie for the lead.
Overnight pacesetter Henley fired a three-under-par 67 while fellow American Langley carded a 65, the pair posting a tournament low of 17-under 193 after 54 holes.
The two 23-year-olds, each making their first starts as PGA Tour members, took a three-shot lead over South African Tim Clark (66) into yesterday’s final round.
Australian Scott Gardiner (65) and American Charles Howell III (67), who has twice been a runner-up at Waialae, were a further stroke back at 13 under in a tie for fourth place.
Henley and Langley, who tied for 16th at the 2010 US Open, eclipsed the previous 54-hole record set by John Huston.
