Johnson Wagner has regained the lead after three rounds of play at the 2013 Greenbrier Classic. His six-under 64 was enough to put him two shots ahead of Jimmy Walker heading into the final round on Sunday.

Here is a look at the leaderboard at the close of play on Saturday.

Wagner Clutch To Close the Day

If Wagner is feeling any pressure, it isn't showing in his play. On the final hole with an opportunity to create a little more space between he and Walker, the 33-year-old from Amarillo, Texas, sank a birdie putt to move to 14-under par on the tournament.

It was just one hole, but that clutch birdie should have given Wagner significant momentum and confidence heading into the final round of play.

The birdie was one of seven on the day for Wagner and his 14th of the tournament. Take a look at another one of his impressive sequences as he takes birdie on the 18th hole here.


Walker Getting Better By the Day

Wagner was very good again on Saturday, but he had to be if he was going to hold off the charge from Walker. For the third straight day, Walker produced an under-par round. He's improved his play every day of the tournament.

He matched Wagner's six-under 64 after producing a 69 and 66, respectively, in the first two rounds. Just as Wagner finished up his day with a birdie, so did Walker. Here he is nailing a 16-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to culminate a stellar round.


Who is Still Dangerous and in Striking Distance?

Jonas Blixt

The 29-year-old from Sweden is just four shots back, but he's probably kicking himself for the double-bogey on the 13th hole. Were it not for that misstep, he'd be even with Walker and a more serious threat to Wagner.

Barring a complete collapse on Sunday, he should have his best finish of the year. However, because he's yet to crack the top 15 in any tournament in 2013, a winning performance is unlikely.


Jordan Spieth

With a string of three straight birdies from 15-17, Jordan Spieth set himself up to at least be a factor on Sunday. He's been consistent as he's been three-under par in each of the three rounds of play. Considering the fact that he's five shots off the pace, he may need to be a bit better on Sunday, though.

The former collegiate star is totally capable of putting together a big-time round. He seems right on the cusp of his first win of the year. He finished sixth at the AT&T National and seventh at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in May.

If the leaders slip, Spieth is one to watch on the final day.
