Garcia understands his lead is not safe

– No lead is ever really safe at birdie-friendly Sedgefield Country Club. The last time Sergio Garcia played here, he learned that the hard way.

Garcia shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to take the lead at 14-under 196 after three rounds at the Wyndham Championship.

It’s a familiar spot for the Spaniard, who shared the third-round lead in 2009 but wound up finishing fourth after falling a stroke shy of a three-man playoff.

“Eighteen pars are not going to win it,” Garcia said. “You have to make some birdies out there. ... I don’t have a number. I’m not going to say I need to shoot 4 under, 5 under, or whatever. Someone might go out and shoot 9 under, and 5 under’s not good enough.”

Tim Clark and Bud Cauley were a stroke back, and Jason Dufner, Harris English and Carl Pettersson were at 12 under in the last event before the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Dufner shot a 63 – the day’s best round. Cauley had a 66, Clark shot a 67, and English and Pettersson had 68s.

U.S. AMATEUR: In Cherry Hills Village, Colo., Michael Weaver opened a big lead and hung on to beat Justin Thomas 3-and-2 to advance to the final at the Cherry Hills Country Club. Weaver will face Steven Fox of Hendersonville, Tenn., in today’s 36-hole match-play championship. Fox won his semifinal 2-up over Brandon Hagy, who is Weaver’s teammate at the University of California Berkeley.

Fox and Weaver emerged from a playoff at the end of two days of qualifying to win their respective spots in the 64-player match-play field. Fox was the No. 63 seed and Weaver No. 60.

LPGA: North Plains, Ore., Japan’s Mika Miyazato shoot a 4-under 68 to take a two-stroke lead after the second round of the Safeway Classic.

Miyazato, tied for the first-round lead with Sydnee Michaels after a 65, had an 11-under 133 total on Pumpkin Ridge’s Ghost Creek Course. Former Fort Wayne resident Amanda Blumenherst is tied for 48th at 1-over 145.

CHAMPIONS: In Endicott, N.Y., defending champion John Huston shot a 5-under 67 to take a one-stroke lead over Brad Faxon after the second round of the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open. Huston had a 12-under 132 total at En-Joie Golf Club. Faxon shot a 66.
