Chris Thompson tied for third, two strokes off lead, heading into final round of tour event


Two-time Kansas All-American and Lawrence Country Club member Chris Thompson shot a 3-over par 75 and dropped two spots into a third-place tie heading into the final round of the United Leasing and Finance Championship, a Tour event.

Thompson and Taylor Moore are two strokes behind leader Maverick McNealy and one stroke behind Jose de J. Rodriguez and Ethan Tracy.

Only eight players shot subpar rounds Saturday at Victoria National, considered one of the toughest tracks on the tour.

McNealy has held the lead at the end of each day, shooting 64-73-74. Thompson has shot 72-66-75.

The Golf Channel airs three hours (2 to 5 p.m.) of the final round.

Thompson tees off at 11:19 with Moore, of San Angelo, Texas, and Brett Drewitt of Australia.
