Stenson, the highest-ranked golfer in the field at ninth in the world, carded birdies on three of four holes during one stretch as he finished on the front side.

"Any time you're within two or three of the lead, you know you've got a good chance", Simpson said. I hit a good six iron, I just wanted to play just right of the pin.

"I feel nothing but frustration", said the 25-year-old who advanced to the final rounds for the first time in seven attempts since going through at the Valero Texas Open in April. Na shot a 65, Schniederjans had a 66 and Simpson - a North Carolina native who won on this course in 2011 - had a 68.

"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.

"It was a very hard thing to do and I guess what the situation proved to me is how much I wanted to still be here". Unlike Stenson, Simpson is relying on familiarity with the event.

Otaegui was thrilled to win his first European Tour title. He had birdies on Nos. Stenson also birdied 14, 15 and 17 and then parred 18 to finish with the lead.

"It's been standing in the shadows in my locker all week", Stenson said about his Calloway driver.

"There's a level of tension and stress in your body that's on a different level when you're in that position", said Geoff Ogilvy (67, T16), who was one of the week's big winners as he moved off the bubble at 125 to 116 and safely on to THE NORTHERN TRUST.

Davis Love III, a three-time champion in this tournament (most recently in 2015), finished with a 69 to tie for 10th place with Harold Varner III (69) and Richy Werenski (69).

"So I better scramble a par here to get the win".
