Wilson, Clark trade birdies

Dean Wilson and Tim Clark both birdied the par-5 15th after pitching their third shots close, putting the two men ahead of the gaggle as the third round winds down in Canada.

Wilson's 8-footer for birdie was the latest in a series of one-putts that have him on the verge of the 54-hole lead and a life-changing win this week. As mentioned earlier, his game has hit the skids the last two years, but he's hit the ball well this week and performed on a Crenshaw-like level on the greens.

Still, it is looking more and more apparent that he will have to deal with Tim Clark the rest of the way. Clark hasn't sunk nearly as many putts as Wilson, but the pesky South African has driven the ball straight all week and leads the field in greens in regulation.
