ST. ANDREWS -- Peter Uihlein holed his second shot for an eagle on the 18th hole Saturday to grab a two-shot lead after the third round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Having missed an eagle putt that would have given him a 59 on the Kingsbarns course on Friday, the American managed a more spectacular finish on St. Andrews when his 47-yard wedge shot on the 18th found the bottom of the cup. That gave him a 7-under 65 for a 20-under total of 196.

Ernie Els shot a 64, also on St. Andrews, to be among six players to sit two shots back. The group also included Martin Kaymer (63) and Joost Luiten (68).
