Gary Woodland, Matt Kuchar tied for Barclays lead; Tiger Woods rallies to finish 4 behind

Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland exchanged birdies and bad breaks and wound up in a tie for the lead Saturday at The Barclays.

Woodland had a one-shot lead when his tee shot plugged into the lip of the bunker on the 17th, effectively costing him one shot. He wound up with a 3-under 68. Kuchar missed a chance to birdie the reachable 16th when his putt from off the green rolled into a sprinkler and stopped. He shot a 70.

They were at 12-under 201, one shot ahead of Kevin Chappell, who broke the tournament course record with a bogey-free 62.

Still in the mix was Tiger Woods. He had three birdies in the last six holes for a 69 and was only four shots behind.
