Byron Nelson Championship 2012: Jason Dufner Leads By 1 Stroke Over Field After Day 3

Jason Dufner shot 1-under Saturday to finish in the lead at the 2012 Byron Nelson Championship after Day 3 at 8-under. Dufner began the day in the lead as well, but briefly gave it up to Matt Kuchar and Dicky Pride. Kuchar exploded over the final five holes, however, shooting 4-over down the stretch including a double bogey on 14. Pride is tied with J.J. Henry and Jason Day in second place at 7-under overall.

Vijay Singh remains within striking distance of a win in fifth place at 6-under. Jonas Blixt and Marc Leishman are tied in sixth place at 5-under.

Bob Estes and Joe Durant were the biggest movers on the day. Both are now 5-under to shoot up 44 spots on the leaderboard. They are tied in eighth place in a pack of six other golfers that includes Kuchar at 4-under.

Phil Mickelson had a decent outing shooting 1-under thanks to a birdie on 18. He is still far away from the top of the standings at 2-under through three rounds.
