By  | 

Eduardo Romero of Argentina grabbed the 54-hole lead at the U.S. Senior Open with a 5-under-par 65 on Saturday.

Romero's three-day total of 9-under 201 is two shots ahead of second-round leader Fred Funk and three ahead of John Cook.

Funk finished with a 69 after three bogeys on the difficult back nine at The Broadmoor's East Course. Cook carded a 66 on the mountainous course that drew praise from the golfers one day after they grumbled about difficult pin placements
