DULUTH, Ga., May 19 (UPI) -- Ryuji Imada put his approach shot within inches at the 18th hole and birdied to tie Troy Matteson for the third-round lead at the AT&T Classic in Georgia.

Imada also made a 50-foot birdie putt at the 16th as he picked up two shots in three holes to join Matteson at 13-under-par 203.

Both players had a 3-under 69 in Saturday's third round to extend their overnight lead from one shot to two.

Columbian star Camilo Villegas used a seven-foot birdie putt at No. 16 to pull within two strokes of the lead on the way to shooting a 4-under 68. He was alone in third place at 11-under 205.

Master champion Zach Johnson parred his last nine holes for a 69 and was tied for fourth place with Lee Janzen (67) and Matt Kuchar (64) at 10-under 206.
