Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ontario continues to lead the 2021 Bermuda Championship from the Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda. On Saturday, Pendrith extended his lead from one stroke to three in his quest to win his first PGA event of his career.

Pendrith shot a third round score of six-under-par 65 and is now at -17. There is only one other player currently in contention, and that is Danny Lee of New Zealand, who is three strokes back at -14. Lee has one PGA Tournament title in his career. On July 5, 2015, Lee won the Greenbrier Classic in White Suphur Springs, West Virginia in a playoff, where he beat three players including David Hearn of Brantford, Ontario.

On Saturday, Pendrith got off to a tough start. He was one over par after the first six holes, and for a period of time actually lost his lead to Patrick Rodgers of the United States. Then Pendrith went on fire. He birdried seven of the next 11 holes and move from -10 to -17.

This is the third Bermuda Championship. Brendon Todd of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was victorious in 2019 after shooting a brilliant four-round score of -24. Then in 2020, Brian Gay of Fort Worth, Texas beat Wyndham Clark of Denver, Colorado in a playoff.
