PGA champion Justin Thomas made three long birdies on a wet TPC Boston course to finish with a tournament-best 63, giving him a share of the lead with Marc Leishman going into a Labor Day finish in the Dell Technologies Championship at Norton, Mass.

Leishman, who shot six-under 65, and Thomas are at 12-under 201 on a leaderboard packed with big names. Paul Casey shot 67 and is one shot behind; Jordan Spieth birdied his last two holes and is two back; and Dustin Johnson birdied four of his last five holes and is three behind.

Etc.

Stacy Lewis came through for her hurricane-ravaged hometown of Houston and ended a long winless streak by winning the Cambia Classic in Portland, Ore., her 12th LPGA Tour title but first since June 2014. Lewis said she would donate $195,000 in winnings to relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Her sponsor, KMPG, pledged to match the donation.
