Haas shoots 64 to take lead at Riviera

DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Published:

Haas leads: Bill Haas had another bogey-free round at Riviera on Saturday for a 7-under 64 -- the best round of the day by three shots -- that gave him a three-stroke lead going into the final round of the Northern Trust Open.

On a warm afternoon off Sunset Boulevard that made the greens even faster, Haas turned in a remarkable score. The key was a seven-hole stretch in the middle of his round that he played in 6-under par, including a 60-foot pitch that dropped for eagle on the scary par-4 10th hole.

He was at 12-under 201 and will try to become only the eighth back-to-back winner in the 76-year history of this tournament.
