Kuchar and Woodland share lead at Barclays

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (Reuters) - Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland battled to a tie for the lead at breezy Liberty National and will be paired today at The Barclays, the opening event of the FedExCup playoffs.

Kuchar carded a one-under 70, while fellow American Woodland shot a 68 to finish Saturday's third round locked at 12-under-par 131.

Unheralded Kevin Chappell fired a sensational, course record 62 to stand one stroke behind his compatriots in pursuit of his first title on the PGA Tour.

Four shots off the pace were Tiger Woods and England's David Lynn, who both returned two-under 69s on the waterside course under the shadow of the Statue of Liberty.

Woods, among 40 players who returned early Saturday morning to complete the second round after play was suspended due to darkness in the weather-hit event, slipped from seven-under with a pair of bogeys but battled back with three late birdies to reach eight-under 205.

"Just hung in there and that was a grind,'' said world number one Woods.
