Scottsdale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Martin Laird shot 3-under 68 on Saturday and he extended his lead to three strokes after 54 holes of the Phoenix Open. Laird ended three rounds at 13-under-par 200. He will go for his fourth PGA Tour title on Sunday. Hideki Matsuyama fired an 8-under 63, the low round of the week at the TPC Scottsdale, and he soared into a share of second place at minus-10. He was joined there by Brooks Koepka (64) and Zach Johnson (67). Jon Rahm, who is a member of the Arizona State golf team, posted a 5-under 66 and he improved into a tie for fifth at 9-under-par 204. He stands alongside first-round leader Ryan Palmer (68) and Justin Thomas (69). Bubba Watson (69), Angel Cabrera (69) and Francesco Molinari (64) are among nine players tied for eighth place at minus-8. Molinari had a hole-in-one on the raucous par-3 16th. Laird, who led by two when the second round was completed earlier Saturday, stumbled out of the gate as he bogeyed the first. He atoned for that mistake with a 5-foot birdie putt on the third. Laird made it two in a row as he birdied the fourth from seven feet out. After three straight pars, Laird drained a 15-footer for birdie at the ninth to make the turn at 11-under. He poured in a long birdie try from off the green at No. 11. Laird moved to minus-13 with a kick-in birdie at the 13th. He scrambled for par on 14 after finding the rough off the tee. Thats just a brutal hole. If you miss the fairway, its almost an automatic layup. That was a big up and down for par, stated Laird about the 14th. He found water off the tee at the par-5 15th and that led to his third bogey of the round. The Scotsman bounced back with a 4-foot birdie putt at No. 17. Laird closed with a par at the last to end three clear of the field. It was wedge and I didnt hit that bad of a shot, making bogey with a wedge on a par-3 youre never happy, especially on that hole. Theyre going to let you know about it. So that was a big one because I had just come off a bogey on the par-5 before, Laird said of his par at 16. Then I managed to get one back with a birdie at 17. I had fun out there even though it was a little erratic at the end. Matsuyama converted back-to-back birdies at two and three before running off four straight pars from the fourth. He drained a 23-footer for birdie at No. 8 and he birdied the ninth en route to making the turn at minus-5. The reigning Memorial winner started his second nine with three more pars. He chipped to two feet at the par-5 13th and knocked that in for birdie. Matsuyama began a hot closing stretch with a 2-putt birdie at the par-5 15th. He followed with birdies at 16 and 17, both from inside six feet. Matsuyama ran in a 17-footer for birdie at the last to gain a share of second place. Koepka had a slow start to his round with eight pars and a birdie on the front nine. He jumped up the leaderboard with three birdies in the first four holes around the turn. Koepka birdied three in a row from the 15th, all from inside 10 feet, to soar to minus-10. Im very pleased with how I played the back nine. I knocked a bunch of rust off and Im trying to get back into the swing of things since this is the first event of the season for me, said Koepka. Johnson opened with a birdie, but followed with four straight pars. He drained a long birdie try at the sixth, but gave that shot back when he failed to save par from the rough at the eighth. Around the turn, Johnson jumped to minus-10 as he ran off three consecutive birdies from the 13th. He closed his round with three pars in a row. NOTES: Laird, whose last PGA Tour victory was at the 2013 Texas Open, owns the 54-hole lead for the fourth time in his PGA Tour career ... He won one of the previous three times he was in that position ... Matsuyama had one of the 10 bogey-free rounds ...

Svendsen missed only one target and completed the 12.5-kilometre race in 34 minutes 47.7 seconds, beating his compatriot Bjoerndalen by 35.6 seconds. The 39-year-old Bjoerndalen -- a six-time Olympic champion and the sports all-time great -- led going into the final shoot but two missed targets. That allowed Svendsen, who beat his teammate by 0.4 seconds in Fridays sprint, to claim his 33rd career World Cup win. "I did not come here thinking that I could win two times," Svendsen said. Overall World Cup leader Martin Fourcade of France was third, exactly 1 minute behind after missing three targets. "I had to be really perfect to beat Emil today and I was not. I thought I could beat Ole, but had some problems with my skis on the last lap and could not do it," said Fourcade, who maintained a comfortable lead in the standings. Svendsen was 139 points behind after eight events. Calgary native Macx Davies was 54th on Saturday. Also, Darya Domracheva of Belaruus won the womens 10K pursuit, finishing in 33 minutes, 35.dddddddddddd seconds to beat Finlands Kaisa Makarainen for the second time in as many days. Fridays sprint winner, Domracheva, started with a comfortable lead of 29.8 seconds over her rival, though Makarainen fought back to claim first position in the third shoot, only to miss two targets and let Domracheva pull away and claim her second victory of the season, by 34.6 seconds. Both missed three targets altogether. Norways Synnoeve Solemdal was third with two missed targets, 1 minute, 19.1 seconds behind Makarainen, while Tora Berger of Norway was fourth, also with two missed targets. Valj Semerenkos ninth-place finish was enough for the Ukrainian to join Czech skier Gabriela Soukalova atop the standings on 278 points after eight events. Soukalova was 26th after Fridays sprint but managed to claw her way back to 12th. Local favourite Andrea Henkel made up 21 places after a disappointing sprint to finish her last home pursuit in 16th. Henkel, a two-time Olympic gold medallist , is retiring at the end of the season. Claude Godbout of Valcartier, Que., was 55th. Mens and womens mass start races are scheduled for Sunday.
