Day three digest: 2020 WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational

Brendon Todd stayed in front at the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational on Saturday but big moves were made further down the leaderboard as the defending champion and many others made a bunch of birdies.

Brooks Koepka

Here is everything you need to know from Saturday's third round at TPC Southwind.

Fowler chips in...again!

When you see a player hole one from off the green, you could sometimes be forgiven for questioning whether it was a bit of a fluke. But Rickie Fowler showed that he's definitely doing it deliberately when he chipped in for the third day in a row on Saturday...

61 for Lewis

Englishman Tom Lewis began Moving Day on three over par after posting rounds of 73 and 70 on Thursday and Friday respectively but he carded ten birdies and a single bogey on Saturday to shoot the lowest round of the day and equal the course record. That left him just six shots behind leader Todd on six under par. Well played, Tom.

Brooks' birdie burst

Brooks Koepka's chances of defending his title were in danger of fading away altogether when he followed up a double bogey at the second with a bogey on the sixth to tumble down the leaderboard. But he reeled off four birdies in a row from the ninth to move back into contention. He picked up further shots at the 14th and 16th but made a bogey on the 17th to sign for a 68 and sit three shots off the lead.

Perez makes an unlikely birdie

Making a birdie was probably the last thing on Frenchman Victor Perez's mind when he realised how awkward his stance would be for his 50 foot putt from just off the green. But that's exactly what he did. What a shot...

Four in a row for An

Playing in the final group alongside Todd and Fowler, Byeong Hun An made a bright start on Saturday, turning in 33 thanks to birdies at the second and eighth. But his hard work was undone by a double bogey on the short 11th and he had some work to do to keep up with his playing partners. He started the fightback with a birdie at the 13th before taking advantage of the par three 14th. He made it three on the bounce with a perfect approach into the 15th green before slotting in another at the long 16th to get to 11 under and sit one back from Todd.
