DEARBORN, Mich. -- Mark James has played for the European Ryder Cup team seven times, captained it once and won 22 tournaments overseas.
Yet, winning a major on the Champions Tour -- in his first year with the 50-and-over set -- would mean a lot to him.
"It would be brilliant. I would be over the moon," he said.
The Englishman took the third-round lead in the Senior Players Championship on Saturday, shooting a 5-under 67 for a 14-under 202 total at the TPC of
James was three strokes ahead of Gary McCord and Jose Maria Canizares, the largest third-round lead in the tournament since 1999 when Hale Irwin was
ahead by four strokes and won by seven. McCord and Canizares, the second-round leaders, shot 71s.
