Jason Day entered Round 3 of the Barclays with the lead, and thanks to some remarkably good play, he still stands atop the leaderboard. Day rebounded from a bogey on the first hole to score birdies on holes two and three, then shot an eagle on the fifth hole to bring him to 11-under for the tournament.
However, his distance from the pack has not increased, thanks to the likes of Martin Laird and Dustin Johnson. Laird started his Saturday play with four consecutive birdies to stand at 10-under. The 27-year-old Laird is in pursuit of his second-ever PGA Tour win.
Johnson, as you may remember, suffered yet another heartbreaking finish during this year's PGA Championship. Through sixteen holes in Round 3, Johnson is shooting 7-under for the day, thanks in part to an eagle on the thirteenth hole. He now sits in third place, two strokes behind the lead.
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods has stalled and is eleven strokes off the lead. Since his triple bogey on the first hole, he's shot 1-over through the following eleven holes to score even for the tournament. Barring a near-miraculous turn of events, Woods will have to keep waiting for his first PGA Tour win of 2010.
