Sergio Garcia went round the back nine at the Byron Nelson in just 29 shots to move within four shots of leader James Hahn.
Defending champion Garcia, posted a six–under–par 64 to go eight under par, and tied for sixth.
But it was Jason Day who was properly on fire, as he shot the round of the day with a 63 to get to 10 under, and T3 with overnight leader Jason Kokrak, who shot a 72 to throw away a five shot lead.
It was not Dustin Johnson’s day that is for sure. After a career–best 62 on Friday, he went round in 72, which included a triple–bogey on the par three fifth.
James Hahn had six birdies in his six-under-par 64 to lead on 12 under, one ahead of Billy Horschel.
But with Day and Garcia lurking they are going to have to battle hard for victory.
