Rochester, NY (Sports Network) – Jim Furyk made two clutch putts on his final
two holes Saturday en route to a 1-stroke lead after three rounds of the 95th
PGA Championship.

Furyk carded his second straight 2-under 68 to end 54 holes at 9-under-par
201. He is one of two players that have three rounds in the 60s this week on
the East Course at Oak Hill.

Second-round leader Jason Dufner managed a 1-over 71 to finish three rounds
alone in second place at minus-8.

Henrik Stenson shot 1-under 69 to end three days at 7-under-par 203. He joined
Furyk as the other player with three rounds in the 60s this week. Stenson
will play with countryman Jonas Blixt in the final round. Blixt posted a 4-
under 66 to get through 54 holes at 6-under 204.

Steve Stricker (70) and Adam Scott (72) share fifth place at minus-5, while
defending champion Rory McIlroy (67) and Lee Westwood (68) are tied for
seventh at 3-under 207.

Four-time winner Tiger Woods tripped to a 3-over 73 to end three rounds at
plus-4, while Phil Mickelson struggled to a 78, which left him in next-to-last
place at 10-over-par 220.
