Crowne Plaza Invitational leaderboard: 4 tied for the 54-hole lead

Tom Pennington

More than a dozen players are in the thick of contention through three rounds at Colonial.

The leaderboard at the Crowne Plaza Invitational was crowded heading into play on Saturday and only became more convoluted as the day went along. Four players, including David Toms and Chad Campbell, are tied for the 54-hole lead with a staggering 49 players within five strokes of the lead heading into the final round.

While most of the remaining field is within a few strokes of the lead, there was quite a bit of movement on the leaderboard. Hideki Matsuyama and Toms shot up the leaderboard with rounds of 64 and 65, respectively. Kevin Chappell went low, shooting a 63 and moving from a tie for 60th to a tie for fifth, one stroke off the pace. Players near the top of the leaderboard at the start of the day needed rounds in the 60s just to keep pace. Jordan Spieth shot an even-par 70 and dropped from a tie for 11th to a tie for 18th. He's still 4-under and within striking distance.

Adam Scott was among the players making a charge. He fired a 4-under round of 66 to improve to 5-under. He's now tied for 11th place, two shots off the lead. While Scott is playing for the Colonial title, he's also playing to retain the No. 1 world ranking. Henrik Stenson is currently tied for seventh at the BMW PGA Championship and whichever player finishes higher in his event will be the No. 1 player in the world next week.

Not everyone found success at Colonial on Saturday. Brice Garnett opened the round with the lead, only to drop into a tie for 25th after shooting a 74. Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedeker and Harris English also tumbled down the leaderboard with over-par rounds. Snedeker and English shot 73s while Johnson shot a 74.

Here is a complete look at the leaderboard through 54 holes:
