2013 St. Jude Classic scores: Shawn Stefani leads after 54 holes

Andy Lyons

Shawn Stefani took over the lead at the St. Jude Classic on Saturday despite carding a seven on the par-3 11th.

Thanks in large part to four birdies on his final five holes, Shawn Stefani is the 54-hole leader of the 2013 St. Jude Classic. Stefani carded a 4-under 66 on Saturday to surge into the lead, one stroke ahead of Harris English.

Stefani's round could have been even better, if not for a 4-over seven on No. 11. He hit his tee shot into the water on the par-3 before hitting his third shot into the bunker. After a pair of bunker shots, Stefani two-putted to drop four strokes. He was able to rebound, however, and managed to shoot a 34 on the backside with birdies on four of his final five holes.

Stefani is 12-under for the tournament, one stroke ahead of Harris English who sits at 11-under after a 1-under 69 on Saturday. English finished the third round with 13 pars, three birdies and two bogeys. He will play in the final group on Sunday, paired with Stefani for the second-straight day.

A few players made moves up the leaderboard with solid rounds on Saturday including Phil Mickelson. Mickelson jumped 16 spots into a tie for sixth place thanks to a 5-under 65 on Saturday. Mickelson's 65 was tied for the second-best round of the day, trailing only Patrick Reed who moved to 8-under overall with a 6-under 64 in the third round.

Davis Love III went the opposite direction on Saturday, dropping 30 spots on the leaderboard after shooting a 1-over 71. Love was up and down all day, finishing with eight pars, five birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey.
