MADISON, Miss. (AP) — Nicholas Thompson and Daniel Summerhays are tied for the lead going into the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Summerhays waited out a rain delay of 1 hour, 17 minutes before making his final 19-foot putt for birdie, finishing with a 3 under 69 on Saturday at Annandale Golf Club. He also led last week going into the final round of the John Deere Classic before finishing fourth.

Thompson bogeyed his first hole in the third round, but was nearly flawless after that with a 65 to reach 17 under. Thompson is trying for his first PGA Tour win and would join sister Lexi as only the third brother-sister combo to win on the LPGA and PGA Tours.

Chad Campbell, Cameron Beckman, Woody Austin and Kyle Reifers are two strokes back.
