Leonard Thompson (66), Tom Wargo (69) and Sammy Rachels (70) are all tied for the top spot at 8-under-par.
Theres an even bigger logjam at 7-under. Seven players are tied for fourth place; including Hale Irwin (68), Andy North (69), Mike Hill (68), Dana Quigley (69), Howard Twitty (70), Allen Doyle (71) and Terry Mauney (70).
Bruce Fleisher (67), David Graham (69) and Tom Kite (71) are just two off the pace at 6-under.
Thompson and Wargo each won in 2000. Rachels is a rookie on the Senior PGA Tour in search of his first title.
Wargo held sole possession of the lead at 10-under through 12 holes, but bogeyed the 13th and 18th holes at the Springhouse Golf and Country Club to share first place.
Doyle was tied with Wargo at 9-under through 14 holes; but, like his counterpart, stumbled down the stretch with bogeys on Nos. 15 and 18.
