Warren has Lead on Nationwide Tour

Former Clemson All-American and NCAA champion Charles Warren has a two shot lead entering the final round of the Samsung Canadian PGA. The Nationwide tour event is being held at Whistle Bear Golf Club in Ontario, Canada.

Warren shot a six under-par 66 on Saturday after shooting a seven-under 65 on Friday. He is at 14 under par 202 through three rounds and has a two-shot lead over Dave Cunningham. Warren's round on Saturday included a four-under par stretch on holes 10-13. For the day Warren had one eagle, five birdies and one bogey in shooting his six under par score.

Warren, a 1998 Clemson graduate who won the National Championship in 1997 as an individual and finished second in 1998, has one Nationwide Tour championship on his resume. He won the 2002 Charity Pro-am at the Cliffs.

If Warren is successful on Sunday he will become the second former Clemson golfer from Columbia to win a PGA Tour event in as many weeks. Last weekend, Jonathan Byrd won the BC Open on the PGA Tour. Warren and Byrd were teammates at Clemson in 1996-97 and 1997-98.

In other PGA Tour action, Lucas Glover shot a third round 64 and improved to a top 20 position at the Milwaukee Open on the PGA Tour.

Glover's round was tied for the best in the field on Saturday.
