IRVING, Texas -- Sang-Moon Bae was in control of the HP Byron Nelson Championship after eight holes on Sunday. But as the final group makes the turn, it might be Keegan Bradley who has the momentum.
Bae was enjoying a four-shot lead thanks to a superb putting display early Sunday. But an errant tee shot, followed by an approach shot that found the water, left him with a double bogey at the par-4 ninth.
Meanwhile, Bradley -- the 54-hole leader who had seen Bae sprint past him on the front nine -- made a clutch 14-1/2 foot par-saving putt that left him pumping his fist after the ball dropped. That left Bradley at 12 under while Bae dropped to 14 under.
Bae made putts of 26 feet, 7 inches at the third; 22 feet, 1 inche at the fifth; and 11 feet, 4 inches at the eighth to grab the lead. The second-year pro is seeking his first PGA TOUR win.
