Bohn is part of four-way tie for the lead at Green­brier

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS - BY JOHN RABY

white sul­phur springs, w.va. — Jason Bohn’s main goal af­ter barely mak­ing the cut at the Green­brier Clas­sic was to get some ex­tra rest be­fore the fi­nal round.

Sweet dreams. And try not to think about be­ing the co-leader head­ing into Sun­day.

Bohn, 42, shot a 9-un­der-par 61 on Satur­day and was at 11-un­der 199, tied with Sean O’Hair, Sung Joon Park and Bryce Molder on the Old White TPC course. O’Hair and Park both shot 66. Molder had a67.

It’s set­ting up to be another close fin­ish at the tour­na­ment, which de­buted in 2010. Two were de­cided in play­offs, and the largest mar­gin was two shots twice.

A crowded leader board has 27 play­ers within four shots of the lead. Tiger Woods wasn’t among them.

Woods strug­gled on the back nine, shot 71 and was seven strokes back.

Bohn’s round was his best on the PGA Tour and in­cluded 14 one-putt greens. He shot 58 in a 2001 Cana­dian Tour event, the Bayer Cham­pi­onship.

A two-time win­ner on the PGA Tour, Bohn has two run­ner-up fin­ishes this sea­son. He birdied the fi­nal hole in the sec­ond round to make the cut on the num­ber at 2 un­der, then kept the mo­men­tum go­ing Satur­day with birdies on four of the last five holes.

O’Hair lost to Jor­dan Spi­eth in a play­off at the Valspar Cham­pi­onship in March but had missed cuts in four of his last five events.

Seek­ing his fifth PGA Tour win and first since 2011, O’Hair had four back-nine birdies Satur­day.

Molder reached 11 un­der with a birdie at No. 9 be­fore string­ing to­gether nine straight pars.

Justin Thomas (66), David Hearn (68), Danny Lee (68) and Chad Collins (68) were at 10 un­der.

Woods was within four shots of the lead at the start of Satur­day’s round and kept pace with two front-nine birdies.

Then all parts of his game came un­rav­eled. He sur­passed 30 putts for the sec­ond straight day.
