PARAMUS, N.J. — Jim Furyk was steady. Jason Day was wild. Both wound up with a share of the lead Saturday at The Barclays.
Day lost his golf ball in a mound of high grass and took double-bogey on the par-5 13th, the third-easiest hole at Ridgewood Country Club. He also took four shots to get down from a bunker on the par-5 17th for bogey. But the Australian made enough birdies for a 3-under 68.
Furyk played bogey-free for a 69 and joined Day in the lead at 9-under 204.
The final round is shaping up as a shootout with 15 players separated by three shots. Included in that group is Kevin Chappell, who owns a home in Kirkland. He had a 71 for a 7-under 206 and is tied for fourth.
