The pointer is only one shot above South Korea’s Byeong-Hun, two over Fowler and three over Koepka, among the top spots before the final round of the WGC-FedEX St. Jude Invitational.
Brendon Todd has a one-shot lead ahead of the final round of a WGC-FedEX St. Jude Invitational stacked, with several golfers on the hunt for the PGA Tour in Memphis.
The 64 and 65 shots in the first two laps saw the American lead by two shots in the intermediate stage, but an irregular 69-shot card this Saturday leaves him with a cumulative 198, 12 under par.
Todd, who won back-to-back titles in November after a five-year trophy drought, has an impact behind South Korean Byeong Hun An, while the list of immediate pursuers is completed by Americans Ricky Fowler (-10) and Brooks Koepka. (-9).
For their part, the English Matt Fitzpatrick, the South African Louis Oosthuizen and the locals Phil Mickelson and Chez Reavie are five blows away from Todd.
The only South American in competition, the Chilean Joaquín Niemann, improved after two laps of 73 shots and managed a 68 card, for five birdies and three bogeys, which leave him in position 61 (+4).
