Lickliter leads into final round of US Bank Championship

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Frank Lickliter shot his best round in nearly three years, posting a 63 to surge to the top of the leaderboard at 11-under 199 after the third round of the U.S. Bank Championship on Saturday.

Greg Chalmers, who led by two strokes after Friday's second round, was one behind Lickliter after shooting a 69. Jeff Maggert and Chris Riley finished two back at 9-under 201.

Lickliter, who last won on tour in 2003, started the day 4 under, but birdied six out of seven holes at one point, making his only mistake in the middle of that stretch with a bogey on No. 7.
