Rory Sabbatini and John Mallinger will go into the final round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship tied together on 13-under-par after ending the day as they started it.

After beginning today’s third round out in front on eight-under, both shot five-under rounds of 65 at TPC Four Seasons to move two shots ahead of a group of three players.

DA Points, who also carded a 65, was joined on 11-under by Dustin Johnson and England’s Brian Davis, who both signed for 66s.

It could have been better for Johnson, who racked up six birdies in his first eight holes to go out in 30 only to come home in 36.

Kevin Streelman is three off the pace after a 64 and tied at 10 under with Glen Day and Briny Baird while Australian Marc Leishman moved to nine-under after a 63, the low round of the day.

Also on that mark is PGA Tour rookie James Nitties.

Lower down the leaderboard, England’s Greg Owen and Scotland’s Martin Laird both shot 68s to sit three-under.
