Miguel Angel Jimenez grabs 3rd-round lead at US Senior Open

UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez handled gusty winds and shot a 1-under 69 Saturday to grab the lead after the third round of the U.S. Senior Open Championship.

Despite three bogeys on the windy back nine, the 52-year-old Spaniard finished as one of just four players under par for the day. He's at 3-under 207 through 54 holes at Scioto Country Club in suburban Columbus.

Jimenez started the day three shots off the lead.

Gene Sauers had an up-and-down day with four birdies and five bogeys, finishing with a 71 to put him in second place. He shot a 68 on Thursday and 69 Friday.

Three players are tied for third at 1-over.
