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.

LPGA TOUR

LONDON, Ontario (AP) — 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 going into the final round.

Ryu has 21 birdies and just one bogey in her first three rounds to move to 20 under and within range of the LPGA record of 26 under.

Fellow South Korean Na Yeon Choi and Munoz are tied in second, while last week's LPGA Championship winner, Inbee Park was third at 14 under.

Anna Nordqvist of Sweden was 13 under, while Americans Brittany Lincicome and Danielle Kang were 12 under.

CHAMPIONS TOUR

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) — Scott Dunlap leads the Boeing Classic after his second-round 9-under 63 Saturday.

Dunlap, in his first full season on the Champions Tour, 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, who shot a 6-under 66 for a two-round 11-under 133.

Tommy Armour III and Mark Brooks are tied for third at 9-under 135.

Fred Funk, Woody Austin and Joe Durant are tied at 8-under 136, four behind the leader.

CZECH MASTERS

VYSOKY UJEZD, Czech Republic (AP) — Bradley Dredge shot a 6-under 66 to take a two-stroke lead after the third round of the Czech Masters.

The Welshman, seeking his third European Tour victory, had six birdies for an overall 12-under 204 at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague.

His countryman and second-round leader Jamie Donaldson shot a 71 and is tied for second with Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark (68), still on course to secure a spot on Europe's Ryder Cup team.
