Broadhurst takes 2-shot lead at Sr. PGA Champ.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Whatever unease Paul Broadhurst felt following a near 2½-hour weather delay quickly evaporated once he hit his first tee shot into the middle of the narrow fairway on the fifth hole at Oak Hill Country Club.

The defending champion felt even better to come out of a second weather delay Saturday and par the final three holes for a bogey-free round and a two-shot lead in the Senior PGA Championship.

"I guess determination, the 53-year-old Englishman said in describing what it took to shoot a 3-under 67 and move to 6-under 204 entering the final day of the major tournament.

It also took some patience for Broadhurst to navigate a narrow course with tiny greens and amid ever-changing weather conditions to extend his bogey-free streak to 38 consecutive holes. Hes in position to become the tournaments first back-to-back winner since Colin Montgomerie in 2014-15, and the eighth in the events 80-year history.

As Broadhurst noted, Oak Hill presents a far different challenge than the longer but more wide-open Harbor Shores course in southwest Michigan, where he shot a 19-under 265 to win last years tournament.

"The emphasis here is on accuracy, no question, Broadhurst said before assessing how much more complete his game has become since he took three years off from professional golf before joining the senior tour in 2016. "I think it just shows Im a lot more consistent than I used to be.

The five-time PGA Tour Champions winner entered the day as the co-leader with Esteban Toledo, who tumbled into seventh at 1 over after a 74.

Broadhursts first two birdies cameimmedia tely before and after the first delay, which began just after 10 a.m. ET. He birdied the 570-yard par-5 fourth hole before the horns blew to halt play. Broadhurst returned to birdie the par-3 sixth. 6. He also had a birdie 3 on No. 10.

The second delay began just after 3 p.m. ET and lasted just 40 minutes, extending the length of the round to nearly 10 hours.

Two-time U.S. Open-winner Retief Goosen was second at 4 under after a 67. Ken Tanigawa was third at 3 under following a 66. Tour money leader Scott McCarron shot a 67 to get to 2 under.

The 50-year-old Goosen, in his first season on the senior tour, noted he experienced nerves in finding himself in contention to win what would be his first title since the 2007 CommercialBank Qatar Masters on the European Tour.

"Its been a while since Ive been in this sort of position when the butterflies are flying a little, said the South African who won seven times on the PGA Tour and 14 times on the European Tour. "In a way its great to get all the juices going. And its almost like you got to try and back off a little bit and not hit the ball too hard. Its a good feeling.

After a bogey 5 on No. 2, Goosen responded by holing a 15-foot birdie putt on No. 4, and then drained a 20-footer for birdie on the par-four seventh. He also birdied the par-4 ninth and 16th.

"I didnt feel all that sort of stressed about the conditions or anything, Goosen said about the breaks in play. "I felt there were birdies to be made out there.

The third round began with hardly a breeze and temperatures in the 60s. The day ended with a steady breeze and muggy conditions with temperatures reaching 80. Storms also caused a more than two-hour delay midway through the opening round Thursday.

McCarron hasnt forgotten what happened at last years major. He was the third-round co-leader at Harbor Shores before being passed by Broadhurst and finishing in a tie for third.

"Youve got to shot a 4, 5, 6 under probably, McCarron said, looking ahead to the final round. "He came from back behind and played a tremendous round to win, so maybe its payback.

Asked if a 6 under is possible at Oak Hill, McCarron said: "Why not? I mean, I felt I should have done that today.
