BRIDGEND, Wales — Bernhard Langer shot a bogey-free 6-under 65 on Saturday in calmer conditions at Royal Porthcawl to take a four-stroke lead in the Senior British Open.

The 59-year-old German star is chasing his fifth victory in the last 10 major championships. He had a 5-under 208 total.

“Definitely efficient,” Langer said. “What happened really good today was my driving was really, really good. Hit a lot of fairways. Hit the ball solid, which then gives you the opportunity to have shorter irons with distance control, and I hit some really good irons to pin-high, pretty close. Gave myself opportunities. The putter wasn’t brilliant but it wasn’t bad. So overall, a very, very solid round.”

Corey Pavin was second, also shooting 65 in some afternoon rain and wind gusting to 20 mph – far gentler conditions than Thursday and Friday.

“It was certainly an easier day to play golf. No doubt about that,” Pavin said. “It was almost balmy out there.”

PGA: Charley Hoffman birdied the final hole for a 7-under 65 at Glen Abbey to take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the RBC Canadian Open in Oakville, Ontario.

Hoffman had six birdies in a seven-hole stretch that ended on No. 15, bogeyed the par-4 17th and rebounded with the two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th.

Hoffman had a 17-under 199 total.

Kevin Chappell was second. He bogeyed the 18th, hitting his third shot into the water.

Robert Garrigus matched the course record with a 62 to join Gary Woodland at 15 under. Garrigus had two eagles and six birdies to tie the Glen Abbey mark set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 and matched by Andy Bean in 1983, Greg Norman in 1986 and John Merrick in 2013.

Woodland followed his second-round 63 with a 68.

LPGA: Hall of Famer Karrie Webb and Sei Young Kim topped the Ladies Scottish Open leaderboard after another rainy, cold and windy day at Dundonald Links in Irvine, Scotland.

Kim birdied the par-4 17th and par-5 18th in strong wind and rain for a 3-under 69, and Webb birdied the 17th en route to a 70. They were at 6-under 210.

Second-round leader Cristie Kerr was third at 4 under after a 73.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Jordan Smith shot a bogey-free 5-under 67 in the third round to take a two-stroke lead at 12 under in the European Open at Hamburg, Germany.

The 24-year-old Englishman claimed the lead for the first time at a European Tour event.

Defending champion Alexander Levy (69) of France and Jens Fahrbring (70) of Sweden were two shots behind.
