An error-filled five-over 75 saw Arjun Atwal slip down to tied 69th at the end of three rounds in the Wyndham Champion-ships, where he won his first and only PGA Tour title two years ago.
Atwal started well with two pars and a birdie on the third, but thereafter it was trouble. He bogeyed the fourth, double bogeyed the fifth and added one more bogey on ninth to turn in three-over. Two more bogeys on 10th and 17th completed his tale of woes as he finished at 75.
On a course where even a four or five shot lead is catchable, Sergio Garcia is holding a one-shot advantage at the birdie-friendly Sedgefield Country Club. Garcia shot a 4-under 66 on Saturday to take the lead at 14-under 196 after three rounds at the Wyndham Championship.
Tim Clark and Bud Cauley were a stroke back, and Jason Dufner, Harris English and Carl Pettersson were at 12 under.
Dufner shot a 63 — the day's best round. Cauley had a 66, Clark shot a 67, and English and Pettersson had 68s.
Garcia's second-round 63 marked his best PGA Tour round in a decade.
Gangjee slips to 50th
Overland Park US: Four birdies against three bogeys gave Rahil Gangjee a very modest one-under 70 in the third round of the Midwest Classic on Webcom Tour, formerly called Nationwide golf.
Gangjee's round saw him slip from 40th to 50th on the leaderboard. Matt Weibring's third-round 6-under 65, which included an eight-foot birdie putt at the final hole, was enough to give him a one-stroke lead over defending champion James Nitties after 54 holes at the Midwest Classic.
Weibring has a three-day total of 14-under 199.
