Overton climbs leaderboard

Jeff Overton continued his strong play of late with a 3-under 69 on Sunday to finish the British Open at 5-under 283.

Heading into the week, Overton had four top-3 finishes in his last eight starts, including runner-up finishes at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and the HP Byron Nelson Championship and third-place finishes at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and the AT&T National.

This week represented Overton’s fourth start in a major championship. His best finish prior to Sunday was a tie for 13th at the 2009 British Open. He also tied for 32nd at the 2009 PGA and 70th at the British Open in 2008. – John Bush
