Watney, Fowler go low at AT&T National

Rickie Fowler birdied six of his opening 10 holes en route to a 6-under-par 64 Saturday to gain a share of the lead with Nick Watney at the AT&T National tournament at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa. Watney finished first with a course-record 62, including a 27 on the back nine. That broke the record of 63 that Steve Marino set about 20 minutes earlier. Marino had matched the record that Chris Kirk posted about an hour before that. Fowler and Watney finished the third round at 9-under 201, one shot ahead of 36-hole leader K.J. Choi (69). For all the hype over the fashionable Fowler, the 22-year-old hasn't won on the PGA Tour in 46 starts as a pro.

Course record matched in Montreal

Taiwan's Lu Chien-soon shot 9-under 63 to match the course record and take a one-stroke lead over John Cook after the second round of the Champions Tour's Montreal Championship. The 51-year-old Lu bogeyed the opening hole, then had 10 birdies in a 13-hole stretch from Nos. 5 to 17 to reach 16 under at Fontainebleau Golf Club. Cook, a two-time winner this year, had a 66. John Huston, the winner last week in upstate Endicott, was two strokes back after a 67.

Tight leader board in French Open

England's Mark Foster shot 3-under 68 for a share of the third-round lead with countryman James Morrison in the French Open in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. Morrison had a 72 to match Foster at 9-under 204. Scotland's Richie Ramsay (68) was a stroke back. German star Martin Kaymer and France's Thomas Levet are three back.

Mills, Dodd take Pub Links titles

Clemson's Corbin Mills, 21, holed a 5-foot par putt on the 37th and first extra hole to finish off UNLV's Derek Ernest, 21, and win the men's U.S. Amateur Public Links title on Bandon Dunes' Old Macdonald course in Bandon, Ore. On the women's side, Texas high school star Marissa Dodd, 17, beat 21-year-old Brianna Do of UCLA, 1-up, in the 36-hole final on the same course. On Friday, Do defeated Levittown's Annie Park, 16, in a semifinal. -- AP
