RALEIGH, N.C. -- John Riegger shot an 8-under 63 on Saturday to take a five-shot lead after the third round of the Rex Hospital Open, while high school sophomore Grayson Murray fell off the pace at the Nationwide Tour event.

The 16-year-old Murray shot a 1-over 72 and is at 2 under for the tournament. He became the second-youngest player ever to make a Nationwide Tour cut on Friday.

Riegger is at 20 under for the tournament, breaking the 54-hole record by four strokes. The only player close to him is Chris Nallen, who shot a 5-under 66 on Saturday but is still five shots behind at TPC Wakefield Plantation.
