Golf: Furyk, Day share Barclay’s lead

First Published Aug 23 2014 05:48PM      Last Updated Aug 23 2014 11:03 pm

Paramus, N.J. • Jim Furyk was steady. Jason Day was wild. Both wound up with a share of the lead Saturday at The Barclays.

Day lost his golf ball in a mound of high grass and took double bogey on the par-5 13th, the third-easiest hole at Ridgewood. He also took four shots to get down from a bunker on the par-5 17th for a bogey. But the Australian made enough birdies for a 3-under 68.

Furyk played bogey-free for a 69 and joined Day in the lead at 9-under 204.

The final round of his opening FedEx Cup playoff event was shaping up as a shootout, with 15 players separated by three shots.



Hunter Mahan was tied for the lead until his approach went right of the green on the 18th and he took bogey for a 68. He was one shot behind. Matt Kuchar, who won The Barclays the last time it was at Ridgewood in 2010, was among seven players two shots behind.

The group at 6-under 207 included Ernie Els and Erik Compton.

Missing from the mix — but not entirely out of the picture — was Rory McIlroy. The British Open and PGA champion made an early move until he was slowed by a pair of bogeys around the turn. He had a 70 and was five shots behind in his bid for a fourth straight victory.

Adam Scott failed to keep pace. Tied for the lead going in a cloudy Saturday, the defending Barclays champion made only one birdie in a round of 75 and left him five shots out of the lead.

At least he’s still playing. Phil Mickelson missed the 54-hole cut after shooting a 75.

LPGA • In London, Ontario, Azahara Munoz shot a 9-under 63 to move into a tie for second place at the Canadian Women’s Open. Despite Munoz tying the course record at London Hunt and Country Club to get to 16 under, leader So Yeon Ryu still leads the tournament by four strokes. South Korean Na Yeon Choi and Munoz are tied in second.

Champions Tour • In Snoqualmie, Wash., Scott Dunlap leads the Boeing Classic after his second-round 9-under 63. Dunlap birdied five of his final seven holes for a two-day 12-under 132 at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge course. He leads by one stroke over Doug Garwood.
