GOLF ROUNDUP

Unlikely pair atop the board

Mark Wilson has been to the PGA Tour's qualifying school 10 straight years, and has gotten so used to the drill that he just assumes it'll be part of his schedule. And Boo Weekley is probably best known for wearing camouflage pants and tennis shoes earlier in his career.

An unlikely pair, for certain. But they'll be the final group today at the Honda Classic.

Both shot 4-under-par 66s yesterday in the third round at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., good enough to put Wilson atop the leaderboard at 6 under and Weekley alone in second, one shot behind. Each is seeking his first career Tour victory.

Wilson is 0 for 110 on Tour, with a world ranking of 265. And Weekley hasn't won any of his other 30 starts, with a world ranking of 196.

European PGA -- Richard Sterne holds a one-shot lead over Oliver Wilson through three rounds of the Johnnie Walker Classic after his second straight 8-under 64 in Phuket, Thailand.
