Dustin shares lead, Lowry on fringes of contention


Dustin Johnson will enjoy a four-way share of the lead heading into the final day of the Canadian Open while Shane Lowry sits just outside the top 10.

The Offaly golfer added a third round 68 to his 67 from Friday to move to 11-under-par, six shots off the pace.

The Irishman had to dig deep on his back nine however, after three bogeys and two birdies saw him reach the turn one-over for the day, picking up three birdies and an eagle on 16 to come home -4 for the round.

Having parted company with his caddy after another disappointing showing at the British Open last week, Lowry has responded well and although it is extremely unlikely he will win on Sunday, another low round can secure him a high finish and some valuable world ranking points.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell meanwhile followed a disappointing level-par 72 on Friday with a 67 on Saturday to move up to a share of 21st, one shot behind Lowry.

Dustin Johnson fired the lowest round of the day to move into a share of the lead, picking up five strokes on the front nine before mixing bogeys, birdies and an eagle on the way home, eventually signing for a seven-under 65 to move to -17.

Also on that score are overnight leader Kevin Tway, and the South Korean pair of Whee Kim and Byeong Hjun An, with the quartet enjoying a four-shot advantage over the next players, South African Rory Sabbatini and American Hudson Swafford who are on 13-under-par.

Having shot a 68, Tommy Fleetwood is level with Lowry on -11.
