Koepka round away from a PGA Tour card


SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) — On a day of low scoring, Brooks Koepka kept up his end of the bargain and stayed in the lead at the Frys.com Open.

In his first regular PGA Tour event, Koepka had a 4-under 67 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead over George McNeill and Jason Kokrak into the final round at CordeValle. A win would mean more than just a trip to the Masters. Koepka would earn a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour.

The 23-year-old from Florida started the year with no status anywhere and since has earned membership on the Challenge Tour and European Tour.

McNeill had a 62 and will play in the final group. He has won twice on the PGA Tour, both times opposite-field events. McNeill has never been to the Masters.
