- Nick Watney fired a five-under par 65 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Brad Fritsch after three rounds of the US PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship.

Watney, who won the last of his five US PGA Tour titles at the 2012 Barclays, had a 54-hole total of 14-under par 196 at Sedgefield Country Club.

Canada's Fritsch, who also signed for a 65, was a stroke back on 197.

Sweden's Freddie Jacobson fired a 66 to join overnight co-leader Heath Slocum on 198. Slocum slipped back with a two-under 68.

Slocum needs a third-place finish in the US tour's final regular-season tournament to qualify for the FedExCup playoffs, which start next week with the Barclays.

Scott Langley, who was tied with Slocum after 36 holes, managed a one-under 69 and slipped into a tie for fifth on 199.
