ALAMEDA, Calif. (May 3, 2014) -- Jonathan De Los Reyes fired a third-round 64 and extended his lead to an impressive eight shots at the 2014 Alameda Commuters.

At the Chuck Corica Golf Complex, the St. Mary's College golfer started the second weekend of the prestigious Bay Area championship in style. His red-hot 7-under 64 was his third straight round in the 60s and served notice to the rest of the field that it's De Los Reyes' championship to win.

Cameron Shaw shot a 5-under 66 on Saturday to move into a second place tie alongside Matt Williams (68).

Adam Stone and Shintaro Ban, the recent San Francisco City winner, shot 69 and moved into a tie for fourth place.

The championship concludes Sunday. For a full rundown of scores from Saturday's third round, see the results link below.

ABOUT THE Alameda Commuters

What's in a name? In the case of the Alameda Commuters Championship, the logo of the almost 90 year old tournament would be a dead giveaway. It's a steam ferry, which was the only way to "commute" to San Francisco from the East Bay before the Bay Bridge was built. Started as an informal event -- the original first prize was a bag of nails -- the tournament has grown into one of the top independent events in California.

A dedicated tournament committee prides itself on running the two weekend, 72-hole competition as if it were a PGA Tour event. Two of the best public courses at the city-owned Chuck Corica Golf Complex are prepared with care. Slick greens, Sunday pins, and even that rarity in amateur golf – spectators are all part of the fun. The roped-off scoreboard is a particular area of pride for the "green jackets" who were wearing dark green blazers before they were made popular by another tournament you might be aware of in Augusta Georgia. The 250 player championship division is cut to 50 and ties for the second weekend, at which time the 36-hole senior division tees off to join them. A notable recent past champion, and scoring record holder, is PGA Tour player Matt Bettencourt.

Note: The Senior Division is 36 holes, played on second weekend. Online registration is only available for Championship Division. Seniors should email Bob bg olf@comcast.net for an entry form.
