You could say Memphian Loren Roberts is aging gracefully. After turning 50 last month he's been tearing up the Champions tour. A 5th place finish in last week's British Senior Open, now he's tied for the LEAD at the U.S. Senior Open.
Roberts was fighting a cold but you could never tell by his play in the 3rd round. He comes out a ball of fire, makes the birdie putt on 8. And watch what happens here on the par 5,10th: He lands it behind the hole and spins it right back into the cup. Incredible! An Eagle from out 70 yards out.
He took at 3 stroke lead for while at 12 under but settles in for a 3rd round 69. Roberts remains tied for the tournament lead with Craig Stadler at 11under par heading into the final round.
