Bryson DeChambeau takes a 4-shot lead heading into the final round

August 25, 2018

Bryson DeChambeau took a 4-shot lead on Saturday at the Northern Trust. He birdied six of the last eleven holes in a career-low round of 8-under 63 for a 54-holes total 16-under 197, boosting his chances for a US Ryder Cup captain's pick.

A victory this weekend would also place him at the top of the playoff points standings.

"I just felt like every time I was able to hit it in the fairway, I was attacking flags," he said. "My golf swing was feeling great and my putting, that has been the key this week for me. I've been rolling my rock really well."

DeChambeau was 9th in the Ryder Cup points race at the PGA Championship and only the top 8 qualified leaving him needing Furyk's pick.

"I knew once I missed the cut, I was not going to have a chance to make the top eight."

"That was really disappointing and especially with the way it happened. I knew that I'm good enough, especially after playing so well this year, to be on that team."

"I can't look at it as that anymore. I've just got to look at it as each week is unique, and yeah, I can't focus on how this affects the Ryder Cup."

"Each week is unique and I've got to play my best each and every week, and if I play well in the FedExCup playoffs, the rest will speak for itself. That's all you can do."

Keegan Bradley fired his lowest round in seven years to take second place at 12-under.

"It was a decent round and I've been saying, I can't remember the last time I felt that calm and together the whole round, from the very first tee," he said.

"I actually felt calmer as the day went on. It's not really normally the case with me. That was fun."

Overnight leaders Brooks Koepka and Jamie Lovemark struggled in the third round. Koepka made only birdies and finished 1-over for the day for a share of 7th place at 9-under. Lovemark, who also made just two birdies, lies in shared 14th place at 8-under.

Tiger Woods struggled with his putting and lies in 49th place after signing for a 68.

"If I can get to 10-under par it would be a nice way to end it," Woods said.

"Most of these guys are going to go really low, and hopefully I can shoot well, one that will get me into double digits tomorrow and give me some nice momentum going into Boston next week."
