Barclays, Final Round: Consecutive Birdies Push Matt Kuchar Into Tie For Lead

What good is mettle if it's never tested? For Martin Laird, that testing has begun in spades, as two straight birdies on 16 and 17 by Matt Kuchar have forced a tie atop the leaderboard at -12.

Laird, two groups behind Kuchar, found himself staring at a birdie putt on 16 shortly thereafter that would have given him the lead back, but the 18-footer was pushed a few inches left. Meanwhile, Kuchar has driven the fairway on 18 and looks to be in decent position to close out with at least a par.
