Derek Fathauer leads Web.com Tour Finals event

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Derek Fathauer shot a 2-under 69 on Friday to take a three-stroke lead in the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, the third of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Fathauer, 13th on the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list to secure a 2014-15 PGA Tour card, had a 10-under 132 total on Ohio State's Scarlet Course.

The top 25 players on the Web.com money list are competing against each other for PGA Tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals and the final leader getting a spot in The Players Championship. The other players - Nos. 26-75 from the Web.com Tour money list and Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings - are fighting for another 25 cards based on their earnings in the four tournaments.

Vaughn Taylor was second after a 69.
