Wagner turning things around at Greenbrier Classic

White Sulphur Springs, WV (Sports Network) - Johnson Wagner drained an 11-foot birdie putt at the last on Saturday to grab a 2-stroke lead entering the final round of the Greenbrier Classic.

Wagner was coming off six missed cuts and a withdrawal in his previous seven events, but he has posted a pair of impressive scores at the Old White TPC Course to move within striking distance of his fourth PGA Tour win.

Thursday's 8-under 62 gave the 33-year-old a share of the lead, and Saturday's 64 moved him two clear of the chasing pack at 14-under-par 196 through 54 holes.

Jimmy Walker matched Wagner's 64, the low score of the day, and jumped into second place at 12-under. The 34-year-old is seeking his first win on the PGA Tour in his 181st start.

Jonas Blixt is alone in third place at 10-under after a third-round 67, while Jordan Spieth (67) is tied for fourth with Australians Matt Jones (66) and Steven Bowditch (69) at minus-9.

Bill Haas (67), who won last week's AT&T National, shares seventh with five others at 8-under.
