Wagner's lead one as back 9 beckons

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Jonas Blixt has closed the gap on Johnson Wagner with birdies on the ninth and 10th holes.

The Swede, who picked up his first PGA TOUR victory last fall but has yet to post a top-10 in 2013, made a 4-footer at No. 9 and 9-footer at the 10th to pull within a stroke of the overnight leader.

Wagner shot even par on the front nine so he remains at 14 under. His playing partner, Jimmy Walker, also shot 34 on the front nine and is one behind Blixt at 12 under.

There are roughly 90 minutes of daylight remaining.

Both par 5s on The Old White TPC are on the final nine holes so this figures to be the scoring nine. There are three other players in double digits under par now -- Steven Bowditch is 2 under through 11 holes and 11 under for the tournament while Brian Stuard and Matt Jones are 10 under.

Stuard is 4 under through 17 holes on Sunday while Jones is 1 under through 11.
