4 tied at Greenbrier, Wiesberger pulling ahead at Open de France

Final Round Update — PGA Tour — The Greenbrier Classic — Old White TPC — White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia —

Four players are tied for the 54-hole lead at 11-under as a crowded leader board should deliver Sunday drama at The Greenbrier Classic.

Sean O’Hair, Jason Bohn, S.J. Park and Bryce Molder all closed at 11-under at Old White TPC in West Virginia. Bohn landed the round of the day shooting 61.

Bohn, who made the cut on the number, needed just 22 putts. Sunday, he will play under a bit more pressure in the final pairing alongside O’Hair at 2:05 p.m. local time.

Bohn entered the week at 80-to-1 betting odds at www.ladbrokes.com as the No. 108 player in the Official World Golf Ranking. He will have a hard time — as most do — to back up that low round. Jhonattan Vegas, the 36-hole co-leader after a 65 Friday, carded 76 Saturday to slip to 3-under and eight back.

A host of players are within striking distance, so look for someone to make a move early. At T-5 and 10-under includes Chad Collins, Danny Lee, David Hearn and Justin Thomas. Thomas has threatened to win a few times this season already.

High-profile players Patrick Reed and Bubba Watson sit T-17 at 7-under. Tiger Woods is T-47 at 4-under heading into Sunday.
