January 19, 2008

PALM DESERT, Calif. -- Robert Gamez, in the tournament on an exemption, missed some short putts but still shot a 5-under-par 67 yesterday to take the lead after three rounds of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

Gamez went to 18-under 198, good for a one-stroke lead over Justin Leonard and D.J. Trahan through 54 holes.

Leonard, the 2005 champion, shot a 67 to pull into the tie for second. Trahan shared the lead with Gamez after the second day and shot a third-round 68.

Boo Weekley vaulted into contention with a 10-under 62 that put him at 201, three shots off the lead.

Weekley, Gamez and Leonard played at PGA West. Trahan was at La Quinta Country Club.
