Third Round Update — PGA Tour — AT&T Byron Nelson Championship — TPC Four Seasons — Irving, Texas —
The rain-hampered AT&T Byron Nelson Championship is trying to catch up Saturday — finishing up round two and moving into round three.
A three-way overnight tie at 9-under featured Jimmy Walker, Steven Bowditch and Jon Curran.
Bowditch has moved to 10-under and leads by a shot at the moment. He is mid-way through his opening nine holes Saturday at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas. Dustin Johnson is making the most of Moving Day. He is 5-under through 11 holes to reach 9-under.
Johnson is T-2 at the moment with Brendon de Jonge and Scott Pinkney.
Bowditch opened the week with a 62 Thursday. The 31-year-old Aussie has struggled much of 2015 after a runner-up effort last fall at the Frys.com Open.
Johnson, who has four Top 20s in his last four appearances here, is eyeing his second PGA Tour victory since March. He captured the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami this spring and was runner-up at Riviera in late February.
