- American Patrick Reed closed with back-to-back birdies to seize a one-stroke lead over Spain's Jon Rahm and Sweden's Alex Noren after the third round of the PGA Wells Fargo Championship. Reed, seeking his sixth PGA Tour crown, sank a four-foot birdie putt at the 17th and tapped in for birdie at the 18th, after just missing a 30-foot eagle putt, to card a five-under par 67 for an eight-under total. Rahm and Noren each fired 69s to stand one stroke behind Reed and one stroke in front of Americans Brian Harman and Vaughn Taylor and South Korean Noh Seung-Yul, whose 67 matched the day's low round with Reed and top-ranked Dustin Johnson, playing his first event since withdrawing from the Masters with a back injury. Johnson is in a pack sharing 14th on four-under.
