Jerry Kelly took a one-shot lead over Miguel Angel Jimenez into the weekend at the U.S. Senior Open.
Kelly chipped in for birdie on No. 18 to highlight his round of 1-under 69. He was at 5 under at the halfway point and will play Saturday in the final pairing with Jimenez, who was in the group with Kelly the first two days, as well.
Jimenez is hoping to add this senior major to the Regions Tradition he won last month. He shot a bogey-free round of 68, hitting 17 greens in regulation but sinking only a pair of birdie putts on the Broadmoor’s tricky greens.
Another shot back is Tim Petrovic, whose 65 was the best round of the day.
Paul Goydos holed out for eagle from the 14th fairway as part of a 67 that drew him within four shots of the lead.
