LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Troy Matteson has turned his rookie season into a rousing success. He did it in four weeks, too.

Matteson birdied the last two holes Saturday, finished with a 7-under 65 and had a one-shot lead at 19-under 197 after the third round of the Funai Classic at Disney.

Joe Durant (64) was second at 18 under, one stroke ahead of first- and second-round leader Justin Rose (72). Twenty others - including Davis Love III, Mark Calcavecchia and Mike Weir - were within six shots of the leader.

SAN ANTONIO - Fred Funk shot a 4-under 67 to maintain a one-stroke lead in the AT&T Championship, his third event on the Champions Tour.

The 50-year-old Funk, a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour, had a 10-under 132 total on the Oak Hills course. Raymond Floyd (66) was a stroke back, and defending champion Jay Haas (64) was two shots behind along with Keith Fergus (67) and Scott Simpson (68).
