I don't know how many more years I have in this game but as long as I'm healthy and as long as I'm playing good and feeling competitive I'm sure I'll be out here.

"(I entered) hoping to pick up some momentum and certainly I did. Webb Simpson is a shot back - he hasn't won since 2014.

But the 41-year-old sank nine birdies - five of which came on the opening nine holes - to soar up the leaderboard and beat his previous best round by two shots.

Wagner registered an albatross - a double eagle on the par-5 fifth hole after holing out his second shot, marking the second one of his PGA Tour career. Bogeys on the 418-yard first hole and the 428-yard fourth hole left him two strokes behind Every.


Shane Lowry is four shots off the lead after the third round at the Wyndham Championship. It showed on the par-four sixth as he drained a 17-foot slightly downhill putt into the center of the cup. He recovered on the back with a late charge that he kicked off with a birdie on No. 13.

A tournament victor at the Zurich Classic, the two-man teams event in New Orleans in April, 23-year-old Smith is comfortably-placed at 45th in the season points standings.

Ben Coley's 80/1 each-way tip Ollie Schniederjans trails leader and favourite Henrik Stenson by one shot after day three of the Wyndham Championship.

His best finish this season was a tie for 14th at the Canadian Open, and he had a string of seven consecutive tournaments from April-June in which he either withdrew or missed the cut. He has finished in the top 10 just two times this year, a second at the WGC-HSBC Championship and a seventh place finish at the Valspar Championship.


Stenson began the day in second place overall and kept himself firmly in contention with a round of 66, dropping a shot on the 18th but managing five birdies. Unlike Stenson, Simpson is relying on familiarity with the event. "I was out of position few time and made errors in strategy".

Also finishing at 17 under was Ryan Armour, who shot a final-round 64.

"I would just stop (during the swing)". Harold Varner III (66) and Richy Werenski (64) joined Love at 13 under for the tournament.

Davis Love III, at 53 seeking to become the oldest victor in PGA Tour history, shot 67 to trail by three shots.


Love won this event in 2015, and despite a 1-over par back nine Saturday, still has a chance to win again this week.
