Davis Riley move four shots ahead at Charles Schwab Challenge

American Davis Riley increased his lead at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas as the PGA Tour mourned the death of Grayson Murray.

Riley, who resumed with a two-shot advantage over compatriots Hayden Buckley and Pierceson Coody at the halfway stage, moved four strokes clear by carding a third-round 66 to close on 14 under par.

World number one Scottie Scheffler climbed to second place thanks to a seven-under 63 — the best score of the day.

Play continued at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth on Saturday after the PGA Tour announced the shock death of Murray at the age of 30.

The American withdrew from the tournament on Friday, having completed the 16th hole of his second round.

"Obviously, the news hasn't really sunk in quite yet, but I'm thinking about his family and praying hard for all of them," said Scheffler.

"I can't imagine how difficult of a time this is. I got to know Grayson a bit better over the last six months or so. There's not really a way to put into words how sad and tragic it is, but I'm thinking about his family."

Buckley and Coody are tied for third on nine under, five strokes off leader Riley and one behind Masters champion Scheffler, following respective rounds of 69.
