- Jason Dufner had two eagles in a six-under par 65 to take a one-shot lead going into Sunday's final round of the US PGA Tour's Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Dufner eagled both par-fives on the front nine, rolling in an 11-footer at the second and pitching in from off the green at the fifth hole at Harbour Town. His 13-under par total of 200 put him one in front of Canada's Graham DeLaet, who lost a share of the lead with a bogey at 18 to cap a 69 for 201. "The front nine was a little bit of a rollercoaster," Dufner said. "The back nine was really clean. I was really happy how I played on the back nine."
