Spaun closed with a birdie on the par-5 ninth to get to 11-under 131.

Kelly Kraft was second at 8 under with three holes left when play was suspended for the day because of darkness. He had a hole-in-one on the par-3 fifth, using a 6-iron on the 174-yard hole.

Fraser, who retired in 2010 after 30 years as an NHL official, wrote on the league’s website that he has a rare blood disorder called essential thrombocythemia, known as ET.

He added that while it is incurable, patients can live a normal life with it for many years. However, it carries a danger of developing blood clots that can lead to a heart attack or stroke.


EVRA SUSPENDED: Marseille has suspended Patrice Evra and could take further action after the defender kicked one of the team’s fans before a Europa League game.
