Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Cantlay both share the lead following day three of the second FedEx Cup play-off event at the BMW Championship at Caves Valley.
After his remarkable 12-under-par round of 60 on day two Bryson DeChambeau was the man in poll position going into day three, and the American played out another rollercoaster round on Saturday.
The former US Open champion carded a birdie and back-to-back eagles through his first five holes before going birdie, bogey, double bogey, birdie, bogey, birdie from the 11th hole to the par five 16th in a ridiculous run of holes.
Despite a couple of back nine blemishes, DeChambeau still came away with a solid five-under-par 67 on day three to ensure he stayed well at the top of the leaderboard – albeit shared – heading into tomorrow’s final day.
The man joining him in poll position is Cantlay after he shot a six-under-par 66 to take him into contention on moving day.

The American got his third round off to the perfect start as he picked up an eagle three on the par five second, after finding the green in two before rolling in a superb eagle putt from 15 feet.
A birdie would follow on the par fourth third, before the world number 10 added another three – all on the bounce – on the 11th, 12th and 13th to move him into poll position with five holes to play.
Cantlay would have time to add one more on the par five 16th to move him to 22-under for the tournament, however a bogey on the par four 18th ensured he dropped back a shot to make the day three lead a shared one.
Rory McIlroy also kept his name in and around the top of the leaderboard, after the Northern Irishman put in one of his best performances of the year to shoot a seven-under-par 65 on day three.

Four birdies on the front nine followed by three on the back saw the four-time major winner build on his solid start to the event, moving him to 17-under for the tournament in a tie for fourth.
McIlroy’s looks to have hit form at the perfect time, as the 32-year-old knows he needs to secure an impressive finish at this week’s FedEx Cup play-off in Maryland to pick up a place at next week’s Tour Championship, as he currently sits 28th in the standings, with the top 30 heading to East Lake next Thursday.
Current FedEx Cup leader Tony Finau looks as if we will not be making it two play-off event victories in two weeks as the Northern Trust champion could only serve out a two-under par 70 in his third one, leaving him seven-under-par for the tournament in a tie for 32nd.
