A birdie on 18 left the 1989 British Open champion on 7 under, level with Frost -- who shot a bogey-free 66 for the week's joint-best round -- and Cochran (67).

Corey Pavin and Barry Lane (both 69) are a shot adrift of the three leaders, with three more Americans -- Chip Beck, Mike Goodes and Lee Rinker -- on 5 under.
