Jim Woodward shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday to match the competitive course record at Creighton Farms and take the third-round lead in the Senior PGA Professional National Championship.

The 55-year-old Woodward, the PGA teaching professional at Oak Tree National Golf Club in Edmond, Okla., had a 2-under 214 total for a two-stroke lead over Mike Lawrence and Bob Gaus.

Lawrence, a PGA Life Member from Anderson, S.C., shot a 71, and Gaus, a PGA teaching professional at Tower Tee Golf Center in St. Louis, had a 74.

The top 35 after the final round Sunday will earn spots in the Senior PGA Championship in May at Bellerive in St. Louis. The top five will get exemptions into the final stage of the Champions Tour qualifying tournament.
