Henrik Stenson closed with 64 to win at Wyndham

Wyndham Championship- Round One

Henrik Stenson shot a 4-under 66 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead in the Wyndham Championship. "Got to keep producing chances", said Stenson, who is ranked ninth in the world.

Blair was right on the cut line for the 125th and final spot for status in next season's PGA Tour going into the final round of the Wydham Championship Sunday.

Padraig Harrington, a three-time major victor, endured a torrid third round of six-over 76 which sent him tumbling down the leaderboard to level par for the tournament through 54 holes.

Only a win or second place would have done for Padraig Harrington but having finished on level par after three days the Dubliner was cut with Power.

Gavin Hend, one of four co-leaders at the halfway stage, shot an even-par 72 to be tied with Peter Wilson and Zimbabwe's Scott Vincent at seven-under. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, losing 0.299 strokes off-the-tee and 0.272 approaching-the-green.

Stenson, coming off his personal tour-low of 62 a day earlier, had his lone bogey in the first 36 on the 18th hole Friday, though he started on the backside. He did his best to make a late charge with birdies on 13, 15, 16 and 18 but was one over through the first 12 and couldn't make up enough ground. "And he birdied 17 and got par on 18". Injuries hindered him early in the season, but Stenson didn't quite have the same magic this summer that he displayed a year ago.

ENDICOTT, N.Y. - Scott McCarron had two eagles in an 11-under 61 on Saturday to join Kevin Sutherland atop the Dick's Sporting Goods Open leaderboard. He has finished in the top 10 just two times this year, a second at the WGC-HSBC Championship and a seventh place finish at the Valspar Championship. The 2011 tournament victor is in good position to make a Sunday charge. Got to 16 there and hit a attractive shot.

"Like, I know I'm as talented as anyone out here " maybe like five guys are more talented than me " so I couldn't let myself quit", Every said. "I like the position I'm in". Akron native Harold Varner III tied for 10th with Davis Love III and Richy Werenski.

Love won this event two years ago at Sedgefield to become the third oldest player to win a Tour event.

Stenson said he left his driver in his locker all week - "he's a little anxious to get out there and start getting some air time next week", he quipped of the club - and certainly didn't need it on the par-70 Sedgefield course.
