Henley makes bomb to extend lead

Russell Henley's chanes of getting his first career win just got better thanks to a 45-footer he jarred for birdie on the 14th hole to get to 20 under and three shots clear of his closest competitor.

The birdie was Henley's 22nd of the week and has the rookie in good position to win in his first start.

Most of Henley's dominance this week has come on the par 4s. He's made 17 birdies on them and no bogeys. Going 50 straight holes without a bogey certainly helped, too.

Now can Henley hold on? The way he's played so far, it looks like it.
