Shane Lowry will go into the finals at the Vivint Houston Open five strokes ahead.

Sam Burns stays ahead as he seeks his first win on the PGA Tour. But the Irishman stays in the mix after a ’68 put him four under par. After a good front 9 – with three birdies – he dropped his only shot with a bogey on the 12th.

After a sluggish start to his third lap at Memorial Park, Burns gradually warmed up to his assignment on Saturday.

The overnight leader failed to pace up and down from a bunker on the green in the par-3 second and then sprayed his second shot at the next hole across the green before hitting a 14-foot par putt for another bogey missed.

He screwed the fourth and eighth with a fantastic chip from the green, then finished an entertaining front 9 with another bogey after finding the sand from the tee again.

Another mistaken run on the 11th left him dropping, but he racked up three birdies in four holes from the 13th on when he recorded a 68 that put Burns to nine under total, and a one-off lead over Jason Day and Carlos Ortiz.

The day would have been even with Burns on his way into the last 18 holes, but the Australian completed three puttings on the 18th in his 67th game to match the Mexican Ortiz, who also carded a three-under-round on Saturday. to be in second place.

Dustin Johnson, number one in the world, looms threateningly to six after a flawless 66.

Padraig Harrington ended his day tied in 28th place after a 71. Graeme McDowell is one over par after a 69.
