Home

Brooks Koepka will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson after carding a five-under-par 65 on Saturday.

Koepka, who is on 16-under, is followed by world number two Jordan Spieth as he occupies second place on the leaderboard on 14-under. 

Sergio Garcia, Matt Kuchar and Bud Cauley are in a tie for third on 13-under, while defending champion Steven Bowditch missed the cut after 54 holes. 

Koepka, who is on track to win his second PGA Tour title, looked slightly sluggish early on as he made two birdies and two bogeys on his first six holes. He began turning his fortunes around when he made two birdies to cap off his front nine. The 26-year-old carried his momentum into the back nine, where he made three birdies, which included a 19-foot putt at the 14th. 

Spieth continued his impressive run at TPC Four Seasons Resort as he started his round of 67 with three birdies on the front nine. Another birdie followed at the 11th, but things went downhill from there as he made a birdie and two bogeys. 

Garcia recorded a 68 on Saturday, which saw him make four birdies, which included a 24-foot putt at the eighth, and two bogeys. Cauley also registered a 68 and just like Garcia, he made four birdies and two bogeys. Kuchar on the other hand fired a 65, which consisted of six birdies and a bogey. 

Meanwhile, Bowditch was cut after his disappointing round of 75, which included two birdies, three bogeys and two double bogeys at the par-four ninth and par-four 10th.
