Price 1up in Champions Tour event in Iowa

The Associated Press Sunday, May 31, 2009 WEST DES MOINES, Iowa &8212 Hobe Sound resident Nick Price took a one-stroke lead into the final

day of the Principal Charity Classic for the second straight year. After finally winning on the Champions Tour in April at the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am, the three-time major champion liked his chances to wrap up the title that eluded him last year when he faded to a third-place finish at Glen Oaks. &8220This year&8217s a little different. I&8217m obviously a little more comfortable, having had the win under my belt,&8221 Price said after shooting a 4-under 67 on Saturday. &8220But it&8217s going to be a shootout tomorrow. This field is so bunched up.&8221 Price had a 7-under 135 total. Joey Sindelar (67) and Mark Wiebe (68) were 6 under, and Fred Funk (69) and Mark McNulty (69) were 5 under. Mike Reid had a 66, the best round of the day, to top a six-player group at 4 under. Two-time defending champion Jay Haas was 3 under after a 67. Price overcame two early bogeys Saturday with an eagle on No. 9, then nearly made a hole-in-one on the par-3 14th.

Sindelar and Wiebe both three-putted 18 to miss a chance to tie Price.
