Update: Another two-shot swing

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – Nick Watney now leads playing partner Sergio Garcia by three shots with eight holes to play in the final round of The Barclays

For the second time in three holes, the final pairing had a two-shot swing. Watney birdied the par-4 10th after a brilliant approach to within five feet, while Garcia three-putted for bogey.

There was also a two-shot swing at the eighth hole, with a Watney birdie and Garcia bogey.

Watney has birdied three of his last four holes and is now at 11 under. Garcia is at 8 under, 2 over for the day.

PGA TOUR Radio’s John Maginnes just said Watney is “eight pars away from winning this golf tournament.”

Brandt Snedeker is the next closest pursuer at 7 under.

Defending champion Dustin Johnson bogeyed his final hole to finish with a 3-under 68 and drop to 6 under, tied for fourth with Tim Clark, who has five holes to play in his round.
