(Reuters) – Nate Lashley played with poise and precision beyond his experience, galloping to a six-stroke lead over fellow American J.T. Poston after the third round at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit on Saturday.
In his 33rd career start on the PGA Tour, Lashley appeared in supreme control as he compiled a nine-birdie, nine-under-par 63 at Detroit Golf Club.
At 23-under 193, he goes into Sunday’s final round with a commanding advantage over second-placed Poston, who lost ground on the leader despite shooting 66.
Another American, Cameron Tringale, moved into a third place with a 65 that left him seven adrift.
