American Lucas Glover continued his strong form in Memphis, finishing the third day on top of the leaderboard with England’s Tommy Fleetwood just two strokes behind in third.

Glover shot a four-under par 66 with five birdies and a bogey to keep his lead in the FedEx Cup, with American Taylor Moore just one stroke behind in second after hitting 65.

This third-round 66 is his 21st consecutive round of par or better on Tour, with 20 of his last 21 in the 60s.

At 43 years old, he becomes the first player to hold the 54-hole lead at 40 or older in the FedExCup Playoffs since Tiger Woods (42 years, 2018 TOUR Championship).

He said it was a scrappy day but he got “a lot out of what I had”.

“Three months ago if I’d have been mad at 66, or if you told me I’d be mad at 66, I’d say you were crazy,” Glover said.

“Just iron a few things out and wake up tomorrow a little more confident than I am right now and see where we are.”

Fleetwood posted his third consecutive 66 to hold on to his spot in outright third with seven birdies and three bogeys as he searches for his first win in America.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy moved up two places into equal sixth, five strokes off the lead, after he hit a two-under par 68 with six birdies and four bogeys.

McIlroy said he has been stuck in “neutral” but hopes to move into contention on the tournament’s final day.

“Five back going into tomorrow, I feel like I could catch fire and hopefully make a run,” he said.
