MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) _ Rafa Cabrera Bello shot a 5-under 65 on Saturday to join Ben Crane and Stewart Cink in a three-way tie for the lead after three rounds at the St. Jude Classic.
Cabrera Bello, a 33-year-old from Spain, has four international victories, but has never won on the PGA Tour. He’s 30th in the World Golf Ranking.
Crane shot a 68 while Cink had a 69 to tie Cabrera Bello at 9-under 201.
