Danny Lee has improved slightly at the Canadian Open, while two other New Zealand golfers are marginally better placed at secondary golf tournaments in France and the United States.

Lee improved two spots to be 60th after three rounds of the US PGA Tour event in Oakville, Ontario.

His even-par 72 leaves the top-ranked Kiwi on two-over, 11 shots behind American leader Brandt Snedeker.

Slightly more prominent is US Tour regular Josh Geary, who is 33rd at the Utah Championship in Lehi.

Geary dropped 19 places down the leaderboard after carding a third-round two-over 73 which included a double bogey at the par-four 18th.

He is three under after three rounds, 10 strokes shy of outright leader Nicholas Lindheim of the US.

Ryan Fox continued a roller-coaster rider on Europe's Challenge Tour event in Le Vaudreuil, France.

The defending champion was third following the first round, plunged to 48th after the second but was back to a share of 15th following a four-under 67 on Saturday.

He shared the best score of the third round with Australian Nick Cullen, who has assumed the lead on 14-under, nine strokes clear of Olympics-bound Fox.
