Scott McCarron eagled the par-5 12th and shot a 5-under 66 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead in the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship. The 51-year-old McCarron made an 8-foot putt for the eagle and added a birdie on the par-3 16th in chilly, overcast conditions at scenic Bear Mountain Resort, the first-year venue in the PGA Tour Champions event that was played in Hawaii from 2012-14. The three-time PGA Tour winner won the Principal Charity Classic in June in Iowa for his first senior victory.

Australia completed a runaway victory in the World Amateur Team Championship, beating England by 19 strokes Saturday and sweeping the top two individual spots. Australia won the Eisenhower Trophy for the fourth time, following victories in the biennial event in 1958, 1966 and 1996. ''It's great for the game of golf back home,'' Australian captain Matt Cutler said.

Martin Flores birdied five of the last seven holes for a 5-under 66 and a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web.com Tour Finals' Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship. Already guaranteed a PGA Tour card with a fifth-place finish on the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list, the 34-year-old Flores rebounded from a bogey on No. 11 with birdies on the next four holes and closed with a birdie on 18. ''I'm not going to change anything,'' Flores said.

(Reuters) - Victorious 2014 European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley wonders whether Davis Love’s comment that the current United States side “is the best golf team maybe ever assembled” might come back to haunt the U.S. captain. “This is the best golf team maybe ever assembled. If we just go play our game … ignore the noise, work hard, do your job, everything else will take care of itself.” Never mind that Love’s comments are not supported by facts, McGinley thinks they hardly help the American cause as the hosts seek to avoid losing for the ninth time in the past 11 meetings.

Johnny Miller doesn't agree with Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III that this U.S. team is the best ''maybe ever assembled.'' He still has a hunch the Americans finally will win, mainly because of the European team they are facing. ''I do believe the Euros have got, at least on paper, the worst team they've had in many years,'' Miller said Saturday at the Tour Championship. Europe is going after its fourth straight victory - and ninth out of the last 11 - in the Ryder Cup next week in Minnesota at Hazeltine National.

Dustin Johnson had a reasonable lie in the rough and only a few pine tree branches blocking his path to the 17th green. Neither seemed like a problem until he played the wrong shot, clipped the tree and wound up with a double bogey Saturday in the Tour Championship. It was an example of how one hole can change everything at East Lake.

(Reuters) - Thoughts of a Dustin Johnson runaway at the Tour Championship were dispelled when he faltered late to fall back into a tie for the third-round lead with fellow American Kevin Chappell in Atlanta on Saturday. McIlroy, sixth in the points list, gave himself a crack at the $10 million with three birdies in the last six holes.
