Better Late Than Never

Scott Petersen seems to have found his form. Too bad he couldn't have found it earlier.
 
Petersen shot a 7-under-par 65 on Saturday to tie Fran Quinn, who posted a 68, for the top spot entering the final round of the Buy.Com Inland Empire Open.
 
After missing the cut in 10 of his first 11 starts in 2000, Petersen tied for 7th at last week's New Mexico Classic. This week, he's trying to improve upon that finish at the Empire Lakes Golf Club in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.
 
Both Petersen and Quinn stand at 17-under-par. Eric Johnson is one-shot back following a third-round 66. Overnight leader Tripp Isenhour is now tied for 5th after bogeying four of his final seven holes en route to a 1-over-par 73.
 
Petersen's bogey-free 65 is his lowest round of the season. He currently stands in 155th place on the 2000 money list. Quinn, who won the season-opening Florida Classic, ranks 39th in season earnings. The top 55 on the money list after this week's final full-field event are eligible for the Tour Championship.
