Allred rallies from bad start, tied for 23rd

BOGOTA, Colombia — Jason Allred turned a potentially disastrous round into an example of perseverance and climbed into a tie for 23rd place entering today's final round of the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

The Ashland native began the third round Saturday at Country Club of Bogota with a double bogey on the fifth hole and bogeys on the first and seventh holes to go to 4 over par.

But he rallied with six birdies over the final 11 holes and improved his standing from a tie for 35th to start the round.

Allred's 2-under 69 put him at 3-under 210 for the tourney, seven shots behind leaders Skip Kendall and Andrew Svoboda and two shots out of the top 10.

Allred began to right himself with birdies at Nos. 8 and 10, then birdied four of his last five holes.

He tees off at 8:50 a.m. local time today (5:50 Pacific). He'll be paired up with Erik Flores and Cesar Costilla.

Kendall and Svoboda each posted seven birdies Saturday. They're one shot ahead of Kirk Triplett, who matched the course record with a 7-under 64.

Charles Warren (66) and James Hahn (67) are at 7-under 206 and tied for fourth place.

Second-round leader Billy Horschel hit his tee shot on the first hole out of bounds and wound up with a quadruple-bogey en route to a 76.
