Patrick Reed birdied his final two holes for a five-under-par 67 to surge into a one-shot lead after the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship.
With one round remaining at Eagle Point, the tournament remains wide open, with Dustin Johnson in the hunt despite missing several chances to close the gap.
Reed struck a short iron into four feet on No. 17 and reached the 580-yard 18th hole in two for a two-putt birdie, giving him a one-shot lead over Alex Noren of Sweden and Spain’s Jon Rahm.
Noren missed a five-foot birdie putt on the last hole that would have tied Reed at eight-under 208.
Seventeen players were within four shots of the lead, a group which includes Phil Mickelson (69) and Johnson, who had a 67 despite missing a half-dozen chances from inside 15 feet on pure greens.
