Stegmaier Holds Lead at Shriners

Playing like a seasoned veteran rather than a guy in his fifth career start, Brett Stegmaier birdied No. 18 to complete a 3-under 68 on Saturday at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open, maintaining his 1-stroke lead.

The 13-foot birdie putt came after he had given up a stroke with a bogey on No. 17.

He leads Morgan Hoffman by one stroke. Hoffman shot a 66 and had four birdies in a row, but had to scramble to save bogey on No. 18.

Two familiar faces in the winner’s circle have moved into a third-place tie: Jimmy Walker and Kevin Na.

The single-hole highlight of the day came from German Alex Cejka, who fired an ace on the 212-yard No. 17.
