Greensboro:

Jeff Overton shot a six-under par 66 to open up a three-stroke lead after three rounds of the Wyndham Championship on Saturday.

Overton began the day sharing his first lead of any kind in two years on tour with rookie Steve Marino and veteran John Huston. He took advantage of late struggles by the strong-starting Craig Kanada to stay on track for his maiden PGA tour victory.

Kanada, who entered the day one stroke behind the leaders, led for most of the third round before triple-bogeying the par-4 16th hole, while Overton birdied that hole and parred out to take the overnight lead on 18 under.

Billy Mayfair (64), Anders Hansen (68), Carl Pettersson (68) and Tim Petrovic (68) were at 15-under 201, with 2003 winner Shigeki Maruyama (67) and Lucas Glover (66) four strokes behind Overton.
