Brian Davis continues to press forward – following what was only his second bogey of the week at the fifth hole with two straight birdies to gain a cushion.
The Englishman made a 12-footer at the sixth hole and a 6-footer at No. 7 to move two strokes ahead of Jeff Overton, Bryce Molder and Zach Johnson. Davis had gone 49 straight holes without a bogey.
Davis had a chance to win the Verizon Heritage earlier this year, losing in a playoff to Jim Furyk and calling a penalty on himself in the process. He is seeking his first PGA TOUR win.
