Josh Broadaway righted the ship after he started Saturday's third round of a Nationwide Tour event with a double bogey and a bogey, finishing the day with a 1-over 72 and staying in the hunt for his first Nationwide win.

Broadaway, who graduated from Byne Christian and played college golf at Troy, entered the third round of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational in Columbus, Ohio, tied for fifth place but fell to a tie for 13th place after Saturday's round.

He is 6-under par through three rounds and is eight shots back from leader John Peterson heading into the final day.

Broadaway led last week's Chiquita Classic at the TPC River's Bend Course in Cincinnati after two days before losing the lead Saturday to eventual-winner Russell Knox. He finished tied for fifth in the tournament.

CALCAVECCHIA, FROST, COCHRAN LEAD SENIOR BRITISH OPEN AS IT HEADS INTO FINAL DAY

WALTON ON THE HILL, England -- Mark Calcavecchia surrendered a three-shot cushion to end the third round of the Senior British Open on Saturday tied for the lead with fellow American Russ Cochran and South Africa's David Frost.

Calcavecchia, the co-leader after the first and second rounds at Walton Heath, was in cruise control at 10 under with six holes remaining before imploding when his accuracy off the tee deserted him.

A disastrous triple-bogey 7 at No. 13 -- after driving into the heather beside the fairway -- was followed by another dropped shot on No. 16, although the 1989 British Open champion salvaged something from his round with a neat birdie at the final hole.

Calcavecchia, bidding to become the fourth player to capture the British Open double, shot 72 to put him at 7-under 209. His stumble gave a bunched-up field renewed hope in the Champions Tour's third major of the year.

Frost shot a bogey-free 66, tied for lowest round of the week on the parkland course just south of London, while Cochran's 67 included a double-bogey 6 on No. 14.

Corey Pavin, the United States' 2010 Ryder Cup captain, and England's Barry Lane each shot 69 and were a shot off the lead, with three more Americans -- Chip Beck, Mike Goodes and Lee Rinker -- at 5 under.

MIYAZATO TAKES 2-SHOT LEAD AT EVIAN MASTERS

Former champion Ai Miyazato of Japan took a two-shot lead at the Evian Masters on Saturday, shooting a 5-under 67 in the third round to move to 13 under overall.

Miyazato, who won her first LPGA title at the Evian Masters two years ago, made five birdies. She heads into Sunday's fourth round ahead of a group of four players, including Kraft Nabisco winner Stacy Lewis.

Overnight leader Miki Saiki of Japan, Ran Hong of South Korea and Angela Stanford are also at 11 under.

Canadian Adam Hadwin, playing on a sponsor's exemption, missed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to finish with a 68, and alone in second place.
