Kevin Marsh shot a 4-under-par 68 on Thursday in the Southern Amateur, giving the 40-year-old Nevada developer a three-stroke lead in the event featuring college stars half his age.

TEE IT UP

Stay on course with this season's pro golf schedules.

Marsh had an 11-under 133 total on the Nicklaus Course at The Club at Carlton Woods.

''I just hope I can keep playing well, but it's two more days in this heat,'' said Marsh, the 2005 US Mid-Amateur champion who won the Carlton Woods Invitational three of the past four years. ''I love this place.''

California senior Michael Weaver, the runner-up last summer in the US Amateur, was tied for second with Georgia Tech senior Ricky Werenski. Weaver had a 67, and Werenski shot 71.

The winner will receive a spot next year in the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational.
