Armstrong donationsaid Katrina victims
AUSTIN, Texas -- Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong and his namesake cancer survivorship foundation will donate $500,000 to help cancer victims displaced by Hurricane Katrina get treatment.
Armstrong said Saturday he expects the money will be used to help transport cancer patients to hospitals and cancer centers where they can continue to get treatment. He said more money could be donated in the future.
"If you've started treatment and you miss a week or two weeks, it's potentially fatal," Armstrong said. "For me and the foundation, we just looked at that and asked not just what can we do, but how does it fit into our mission?"
Armstrong survived a bout with testicular cancer that had spread to his lungs and brain before he won the first of his record seven straight Tours titles. He retired from competitive racing in July after his final Tour victory.
Armstrong said the money would be sent to the hospitals and cancer centers, which would then arrange for transportation for patients.
Armstrong said he's been following the hurricane crisis on television and in newspapers.
"It just seems like help was late to come there," he said.
European Masters
CRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland -- Sergio Garcia pitched in from 110 yards on the last hole for an eagle Saturday, giving the Spaniard a par 71 and a one-shot lead after three rounds of the European Masters.
Garcia was at 11-under 202 entering the last round. Garry Houston of Wales, who has never finished better than fourth in a top tournament, shot a 69 for 203.
England's Luke Donald, the defending champion, made three birdies and an eagle on his last four holes for a 66 that put him at 204. Denmark's Anders Hansen (67) also was at 204. Six players were at 206, including Ryder Cup player Paul Casey.
Garcia, ahead by three strokes after two rounds, lost the lead at the 17th when he three-putted from 8 feet for a double-bogey 6. His eagle-2 with a lob wedge at the 18th put him back in front.
"I'm still leading and I cannot play worse tomorrow than I did today," said Garcia, who had another double bogey in his round. "I felt like an 8-year-old again."
China Masters
BEIJING -- Retief Goosen shot a 1-under-par 71 Saturday and held the third-round lead at the China Masters, with U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell a stroke behind.
Goosen was at 14-under 216 and led the Asian Tour event for the third straight day.
"It was terrible," the South African said. "I didn't hit the ball well today, especially with my irons. It was a bit of a scramble but we're still leading. I need to play a lot better if I want to win it tomorrow."
Campbell of New Zealand had a 71 after an erratic round that included five birdies and four bogeys.
