With his young family on hand for the first time in his career, Matt Harmon of Grand Haven, Mich., shot a nine-under par 63 on Saturday at Dakota Dunes Golf Links, opening up a five stroke lead heading into the final round of the Dakota Dunes Open in Saskatoon.
Harmon’s 63 put him five strokes ahead of Sweden’s Robert Karlsson heading into the final round, six ahead of Chris Williams of Moscow, Id.
“It’s our first family trip, so this is very relaxing,” said Harmon. “My guesses were right with the bounces and things went right for me and I made more putts than I did any of the other days.”
Harmon carded seven birdies on the day, including on two of his final three holes. He also had an eagle to reach 18-under par through 54 holes.
Riley Fleming of Airdrie, Alta., made the most of moving day on Saturday, using a wild eagle-par-birdie-eagle stretch on holes 13 through 16 to shoot a seven-under 65 and share fifth place through 54 holes with eight other players.
Also tied for fifth at 10 under are Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., and David Byrne of Essex, Ont.
