Wagner 2-0 with third-round lead

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Johnson Wagner is looking to beat the odds at The Greenbrier Classic, and he has personal history on his side.

No third-round leader has gone one to win the popular PGA TOUR event in its three-year history. But Wagner, who owns a two-stroke advantage as he waits to tee off in the weather-delayed final round, has won two of his three TOUR titles when owning the 54-hole lead.

The first came at the 2008 Shell Houston Open. Wagner -- who is playing tribute to his Virginia Tech Hokies by wearing maroon pants trimmed with orange on Sunday -- owned a one-stroke advantage over Chad Campbell, closed with a 71 and ended up beating Campbell and Geoff Ogilvy by two.

Three years later at the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun, Wagner again led by one, this time over Chris Stroud. He ended up shooting a solid 67 and had to beat Spencer Levin, who shot 65, in a playoff.
