Fuzzy Zoeller charged into the lead with a run of four of his seven birdies in a somewhat erratic 69 today and will take a two-shot margin into Sunday's closing round of the $450,000 Sea Pines Heritage Classic.

Zoeller, tied for the lead on three separate occasions, moved to the fore with birdies on the 11th through 14th holes. He completed three rounds over the Harbour Town Golf Links in 8-under-par 205.

Greg Norman, trying to make amends for the last-hole lapse that may have cost him the Masters last week, was in a tie for second at 207 with Chip Beck and Jay Haas. Norman shot 69 in the sunny, breezy weather. Beck took 70 and Haas closed up with a bogey-free 66.

Roger Maltbie was at 70 -- 208.

Defending champion Bernhard Langer one-putted 13 times and had nine birdies in a round of 64 that moved him from a tie for 55th to a tie for sixth at 210. One of three others at 210 was Dan Halldorson, who led through two rounds but shot 76.

Langer, due to return to his native West Germany next week because of the prospect of burdensome U.S. taxes, said, "I might take the chance" with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and continue to play in this country. The decision, he said, must be made by Monday.
