Still Dufner's show

Jason Dufner has the 54 hole lead at the HP Byron Nelson Championship at TPC Four Seasons Resort, Irving, Texas shooting a third round -1 under par 69, for a tournament total of -8 under par. He leads by one from three players who are tied in second spot at -7 under par. They are J.J. Henry, Aussie Jason Day the 2010 champion, and Dickie Pride. Just one shot further back is Fijian Vijay Singh, who had a third round 66 to elevate himself up the leaderboard. His experience could be a deciding factor in the final round tomorrow, plus an extra incentive, he is looking to end a four-year victory drought.

Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els look to be out of contention, Phil with a tournament total of -2 under par and Ernie one shot further back at -1.

Should be a good tussle tomorrow, with Jason Dufner, J.J. Henry and Dickie Pride all going for their second career Tour wins, and veteran V.J. Singh seeking to end a four-year absence from the winners circle.
