July 14, 2018

Michael Kim celebrated his 25th birthday with a seven-under par 64 in the third round of John Deere Classic on Saturday, stretching his lead to five strokes over Bronson Burgoon.

Kim shrugged off two weather delays, capping his round with four straight birdies to put himself in prime position to strike on Sunday for a first US PGA Tour title.

He had a 54-hole total of 22-under par at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.

Burgoon's five-under par 66 included an eagle at the par-five second and three straight birdies to close his round.

It left the American on 17-under 196, one stroke in front of Australian Matt Jones -- who eagled the 17th on the way to a 66 for 197.

American Harold Varner was alone in fourth after a 66 for 198.

Another long day started with a handful of players returning to complete their second rounds after weather disruptions on Friday.

That included Kim, who closed his second round with a bogey but still took a three-shot lead over four players into the third round, a quartet that included Burgoon.

Third round play was interrupted for nearly three hours by dangerous weather conditions on Saturday morning.

Kim was playing the 14th when weather halted play again for an hour in the evening.

When play resumed he didn't miss a beat, rolling in birdie putts of 20 feet and 19 feet at 15 and 16, then adding an eight-foot birdie at the 17th and 10-foot birdie at the last.

He finished with eight birdies overall and one bogey -- a three-putt at the par-three seventh.

That bogey, along with Burgoon's early eagle and tap-in birdie at the seventh, saw Burgoon briefly pull within one stroke of Kim.

Burgoon's charge stalled with seven straight pars followed by a bogey at the par-four 15th shortly after play resumed in the wake of the second weather delay.

He finished on a high note, however, with a trio of birdies.
