Olin Browne has led the U.S. Senior Open golf tournament after each of the first three rounds – Thursday and Friday and Saturday – and entering Sunday’s final round at Inverness Club has turned the event into perhaps a two-player chase for the title along with Mark O’Meara.

Browne (15-under) followed his rounds of 64 and 69 with a 6-under 65 Saturday while playing in the final pairing with O’Meara, who made a few charges at the lead before settling for a 66 Saturday to enter the final 18 holes at 13-under.

Four players are tied for third place at 9-under, including Jeff Sluman, Peter Senior, Joey Sindelar and Mark Calcavecchia.

From that group, it was Sluman who made the biggest climb on moving day, carding a 65.

The three players who are tied seventh place at 7-under are Hale Irwin, who won the 1979 U.S. Open here, Jeff Roth and Michael Allen.
