Anthony Kim made nine birdies and an eagle in 21 holes yesterday in the Canadian Open for a share of the lead with Chez Reavie during the suspended third round at rain-softened Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario.

Kim, tied for 26th at 4 under par through 15 holes when second-round play was suspended Friday night, went birdie-birdie-eagle yesterday morning for a 2-under 69, then added a bogey-free 64 in the third round to match Reavie at 15 under.

Reavie was 2 under through 16 holes when darkness ended play on the course saturated by more than 8 inches of rain in a week. He had a 25-foot putt from the fringe on No. 17 when he called it a day.

"When we got up to 17, I didn't want to putt. It was too dark to read my putt," said Reavie, the 26-year-old former Arizona State player in his first PGA Tour season. "We figured we had to play 18 in the morning, so what difference does finishing 17 do."

Kim's morning finish gave him a 7-under 29 on the back nine after he played the front nine Friday in 5-over 40. Kim, 23, played the final nine holes of the second round and first nine holes of the third in 11-under 60.

LPGA - Angela Park birdied the final three holes for a 4-under 68 to keep a one-shot lead after the third round of the Evian Masters in Evian-Les-Bains, France.

Park, 19, had a total of 14-under 202. Taiwan-born Candie Kung was one shot back after a 67.

"I was playing mediocre throughout the whole round," Park said. "I didn't see anyone else go extremely low so I tried to stay positive and it came around."

Julie Inkster was third at 11 under after a 69, her third straight sub-70 round. Helen Alfredsson, who trailed Park by one stroke after a course-record 63 Friday, was four shots back following a 71.

Park is looking for her first LPGA Tour victory, and has never led after 54 holes.

Senior British Open - John Cook took a one-stroke lead at Royal Troon in Scotland, shooting a 4-under 67 to capitalize on the collapse of Bruce Vaughan.

Vaughan birdied the par-3 eighth to take a three-shot lead at 7-under, but then bogeyed four straight and Cook rolled in a 4-foot birdie at 13 for a two-stroke lead.

European - Former champion Mikael Lundberg shot a 4-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead after the third round of the Russian Open in Nakhabino.
