With blustery southeast winds averaging 15-20 mph, Texans Matt Cordell and Bryant Lach increased their lead in the Champions Cup from one to five shots, shooting a crafty 5-under 66 in the third round at Champions Golf Club in Houston.

The local team’s round of 66 included six birdies and one bogey and put the leaders at 14 under par for 54 holes. Cordell and Lach are looking for their second Champions Cup title after winning their first in 2017.

Chasing the Texans, with 54-hole totals of 9-under 204, are the teams of Nick Ushijimia and Bowen Osborn with 1-under 70, Ty Comerford and Dustin Sloat with 2-under par 69 and Shane Heise and Justin Kaplan matched the leaders with their own 5-under 66 in Saturday’s third round.

The average team score for Day 3 was 72.10, which is the highest scoring average over the first three rounds on the challenging par-71 Cypress Creek course.

The final round will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.

ABOUT THE Champions Cup Invitational

Champions is Jack Burke's club, and the Champions Cup is his invitational tournament. This is a special place, full of history and worthy of the championships it has hosted, which include the Ryder Cup, U.S. Open, U.S Amateur, U.S. Mid- Amateur and multiple Tour Championships. The Champions Cup is a 72-hole four-ball event with no cut. It is a very popular tournament that attracts a very strong, competitive national field. To be considered for entry, players must maintain a maximum USGA handicap of 3, be at least 25 years old and submit playing accomplishments to be considered. Walking is required but long pants are no longer mandatory. Contestants are urged to stay at the homes of Champions members (at no cost), but can arrange their own accommodations if desiring to do so. The tournament formerly required both contestants to be from the same state but has since waived that requirement.
