Day shares lead
AUSTRALIA’S US PGA Champion Jason Day and South Korean Bae Sang-Moon jumped on the birdie bandwagon yesterday, both firing seven-under-par 63s to share the 54-hole lead at the Barclays in New Jersey.
Day, who captured his first major title at Whistling Straits two weeks ago, had six birdies and an eagle, with just one bogey, as he joined playing partner Bae on 11-under-par 199 at Plainfield Country Club.
Bae finished with nine birdies and two bogeys for his share of a one-stroke lead over two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson.
Watson carded a threeunder-par 67 for 200.
