Rookie duo Scott Langley and Russell Henley share the lead at the Sony Open in Hawaii with the pair on 17 under par heading into the final round.

After starting the day two shots behind, Langley managed to draw level after making his fifth birdie of the day on the par four tenth before pulling ahead on 13.

A bogey on the 14th brought Langley back level, before a birdie on the next hole once again gave Langley the lead.

In contrast, his 23-year-old rival had a unremarkable round with three birdies including a four on the par five last to become the first player to reach 17 under par after 54 holes, while he also maintained his record of not dropping a shot in the tournament.

Langley could have moved to 18 under but could not putt his birdie attempt from 11 feet on the 18th and had to settle for a share of the honours.

South African Tim Clark is three back as he went four under in his third round, while Charles Howell III and rookie Scott Gardiner are a further shot back.

It’s Gardiner’s first tour start and the 36-year-old Australian, who is the oldest rookie on the circuit, was more than pleased with his performance over the first three days.

“It’s amazing what happens when expectations are not there,” he said. “I only hit balls once in the two weeks before the tournament because we had snow at Christmas and a couple days after.”

He played 195 Web.com Tour events for the last eight years, winning once before graduating, thanks to a 15th-place finish on last year’s money list with 234,000.

“I’ve been trying to remember some of the times I’ve played well on the Web.com Tour and that’s helped me a little,” he added. “All the years on the Web.com Tour have been fantastic so this is not as unfamiliar as it might be for other rookies.”

Bradford 32 Hull KR 26: Battling Bulls keep play-off hopes alive

Loose forward Jamie Langley doubled his try tally for the season as
Bradford kept alive their Stobart Super League play-off hopes with a
fifth successive home win.

The Bulls are still waiting to hear if the administrator has found a
suitable buyer for the club but the players continued to make light of
the uncertainty over their futures with another battling victory.

Langley touched down in each half and winger Jason Crookes, whose hat-trick helped Bradford to a 36-24 win at Hull KR in March, marked his comeback from a four-month lay-off with a dislocated shoulder with a crucial second-half score.

The Bulls were far from their best against an under-strength Rovers team but did just enough to gain the points that enabled them to draw level with their eighth-placed opponents.

Hull KR, who gave a debut to prop James Green and a first start to loose forward George Griffin, were without four of their first-choice backs, including stand-off Blake Green, but still managed to cause plenty of problems for their hosts largely through the prompting of scrum-half Michael Dobson.

It was Dobson who gave the visitors a the lead with a fifth-minute penalty but the Bulls made most of the early running and ought to have made more of a clean break by second rower Tom Olbison.

Rovers centre Liam Salter rescued his side with a try-saving tackle on lively full-back Brett Kearney but Bradford got the first try on 16 minutes when Langley ran onto Ben Jeffries' short pass to cross untouched.

But Langley then coughed up possession from the re-start and that gave Hull KR the position for replacement prop Scott Taylor to take Lincoln Withers' pass from dummy half and crash over for his side's first try.

The Bulls regained the lead when right winger Shaun Ainscough gathered Luke Gale's pinpoint kick to score a second try but the errors continued and Rovers punished Bradford's indiscipline to score again nine minutes before half-time.

Skipper Ben Galea combined with Dobson to create an overlap for winger David Hodgson to score his 15th try of the season and Dobson's third goal, which grazed an upright, restored the visitors' advantage.

Stalemate set in early in the second half but the game came alive when the Bulls found some rare cohesion to score two tries in a five-minute spell.

Centre Keith Lulia demonstrated exceptional strength on the run to create an opening for Crookes, who finished strongly at the corner, and Langley produced a turn of pace to go through a gap and bump off full-back Louis Sheriff to score his second try.

Gale added both goals to put his side 10 points clear but Rovers struck back on 63 minutes when Salter crossed wide out for his side's third try and Dobson kicked his fourth goal.

Bradford finally made the game safe when Gale broke clean through the first line of defence and second rower Elliott Whitehead was in support to score their fifth try.

Gale kicked his fifth conversion and added a penalty before winger Craig Hall grabbed a last-minute consolation try for the visitors, with Dobson kicking his fifth goal.

Bradford chairman Peter Hood will this morning sit at his desk, calculator in hand, and do a final set of sums; by lunchtime he will announce the fate of one of rugby league’s biggest clubs.

For 10 days the Bulls have wrestled with concerns far greater than the local bragging rights this spirited display gave them. Odsal has not rocked like this for years, but it could yet still be to no avail.

In desperation, Bradford have been
asking the public for pledges of support in a bid to meet the first of
two 500,000 payments they need to stay in business. The squad has been
washing cars; past heroes have auctioned off medals and shirts.

Bulls coach Mick Potter said: ‘The
crowd was good tonight and that helps. I’d like to think that everything
is going to be OK, but you never know.’

That it has come to such drastic
measures only underlines rugby league’s startling lack of financial
muscle. This week Hull KR chairman Neil Hudgell has labelled the sport
‘bankrupt’ and Eamonn McManus, his opposite number at St Helens, has
openly challenged the game’s leaders with his belief that a 14-club
Super League is unsustainable.

But last night’s 20,821 crowd
certainly made it hard to envisage a future without the club who were
world champions as recently as 2006, and their spirited display against
current premiers Leeds will give Potter plenty of on-field hope —
provided they can stay afloat.

Zak Hardaker’s try gave Leeds a
slender half-time lead, but Bradford slowly strangled their opposition
before landing the killer blows through Jamie Langley and Ben Jeffries.

Even indiscipline could not stop
them, with Olivier Elima’s yellow card and Bryn Hargreaves’s dismissal
still not providing Leeds with enough space to flourish.

Chris Tremlett facing back operation

Tremlett facing back op as England bowler continues to suffer with 'chronic' problem

In trouble: Tremlett may need surgery

In trouble: Tremlett may need surgery

Ashes winner Chris Tremlett may need surgery to cure the back problem which forced him out of England's ongoing Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.

Fast bowler Tremlett had to fly home before the second of two successive defeats to date, having added just one appearance since the same problem ruled him out of last summer's Trent Bridge Test against India and then for five and a half months afterwards.

The 6ft 7in fast bowler, who took 17 wickets in three Tests in England's historic Ashes victory in Australia last winter, is suffering with a back problem which has been described as 'chronic' by medical specialists.

The England team's physiotherapist Ben Langley told The Sun: 'Scans have revealed various issues with Chris' back – but we have to find out exactly what is causing the current problem.

'He will see two specialists to get two opinions. The programme he followed after breaking down last summer has not worked, so he might have to go down the surgery route.'

Thirty-year-old Tremlett has fallen prey to injury several times since making his Test debut against India five years ago.

Langley added: 'If Chris does need an operation, we are hopeful he will be able to bowl again in the future.

'He is a very calm man, who has taken all his injury frustrations in his stride.

'He always does his rehab very diligently so he will certainly give himself the best chance of a full recovery.'

Tremlett's injury is one of several to hamper England's pace-bowling resources of late.

Stuart Broad is fit again, but spent last autumn resting a shoulder problem; Tim Bresnan also flew home from the Middle East last month with post-operative elbow pain, and his participation in the forthcoming limited-overs leg of England's tour remains in doubt – and only yesterday, Stuart Meaker had to leave the Lions tour of Sri Lanka.
