Stanford takes 14-shot lead into final round

LA QUINTA, Calif. -- After seeing Patrick Rodgers shoot a second-round 68, Stanford will take a 14-shot lead into Wednesday’s final round of the Prestige at PGA West.

Rodgers, the clubhouse leader, stands at 9-under after blazing through PGA West’s Greg Norman Course on Tuesday. Rodgers had bookend bogeys, but in between, dropped five birdies to finish with a 3-under for his 10th straight round shooting par or better.

Stanford (269-280) sports a 19-under 549 and leads second-place Washington’s 563. Washington had a day-two best 277 among the 12-team field.

At the par-71, 7,070-yard course, Cameron Wilson birdied nine, 10 and 12 while finishing at 1-under. David Boote also finished at 1-under.

Jim Liu moved up 23 spots into a tie for 14th after a front-nine 34 was followed by a back-nine 33. Liu finished 4-under on the day at 67, seven strokes better than his opening round.

Maverick McNealy, who fired a 65 to open the event, shot a 1-over 72 along with Viraat Badhwar. McNealy is tied for second overall at 5-under.

Dominick Franks was 1-under through nine and finished with a 4-over 75.

Patrick Grimes took five shots off his scorecard from Monday, finishing at 3-over. Keegan English was four shots better after recording a 78. English was even on the front nine.
