Englishman Mark James shot a 6-under-par 66 to share the lead at the British Masters with Northern Ireland's David Feherty and Australia's Brett Ogle at Woburn, England yesterday. Feherty and Ogle had 68s and the trio had 54-hole scores of 203, putting them three strokes ahead of the pack.

Scotsman Coling Montgomerie was their closest rival after a 71.

Two-time U.S. Masters champion Nick Faldo, the defending champion, was well off the pace. Faldo had a 72 for a three-round total of par 216.

"Played lousy, putted lousy," Faldo said.

Dawn Coe, Cathy Marino and Barba Mucha were at 140 while the group at 141 included Pat Bradley, Kathy Postlewait, Maric Bozarth, Lisa Walters and Caroline Pierce. Coe and Mucha shot 69s and Marino a 72.

Bradley birdied two of the last three holes for a 69.

Commemorative: Two-time defending champion Bob Charles birdied three of the final five holes on the way to a 64 and a one-shot lead over Lee Trevino after the second round of the senior event in Scarborough, N.Y.

Chi Chi Rodriguez matched Charles's 64, highlighted by a hole-in-one on the 10th hole.
