Huh, Reed share lead at Wyndham

John Huh has joined Patrick Reed in the lead after the third round of the Wyndham Championship, while Zach Johnson has stormed into contention. Huh shot an even-par 70 to move alongside Reed at 10 under for the tournament at the top of the leaderboard in Greensboro, North Carolina, while Johnson carded the equal-best round of the day to reach nine under overall. A bogey on the 18th hole cost Johnson a share of the lead, however, as the 37-year-old American putted three times on the final green to drop a shot behind Reed and Huh and post a four-under 66. Reed started Saturday&aposs third round on top of the leaderboard but after four straight pars, the 23-year-old from Texas bogeyed two holes in a row. A birdie on the eighth hole and bogeys on the ninth and 12th followed, before Reed got his act together and carded three consecutive birdies from the 14th. Despite a bogey on the 18th, Reed remains on top at the PGA Tour event with a round to play, while Huh also recovered from a poor start to join his American compatriot out in front. Huh, 23, triple-bogeyed the second hole at Sedgefield Country Club but responded with 10 straight pars. Birdies on the 13th, 15th and 16th holes dragged Huh up to 10 under, one stroke ahead of a group of three players. The United States&apos Bob Estes and Jordan Spieth are alongside Johnson at nine under, while three more Americans, Robert Garrigus, Brian Harman and Matt Every, are tied for sixth, a further stroke back. American Brendan Steele matched Johnson&aposs round of 66 to move to six under for the tournament, while a quintet of players are tied for 10th. Australia&aposs Alistair Presnell, reigning champion Sergio Garcia of Spain, South Africa&aposs Rory Sabbatini and American pair Jim Herman and Charlie Beljan all sit at five under. Of the rest of the Australians, Nick O&aposHern (67) sits at four under alongside Scott Gardiner (67), while Matt Jones (71) is at three under with Geoff Ogilvy (71) and John Senden (72) a further shot back. Steven Bowditch and Greg Chalmers are at one under, with Cameron Percy (even par) and Stuart Appleby (two over) further behind.
