CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 2 (UPI) -- Zach Johnson shot 4-under 68 Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the PGA Quail Hollow Championship at Charlotte, N.C.

Johnson, the 2007 Masters champion and five-time winner on the PGA Tour, completed 54 holes at 11-under-par 205.

Tiger Woods had taken the lead with a birdie on the 15th, but bogeyed the final two holes to finish two back at 207. Woods (70) shared second place with Lucas Glover (68) and George McNeill (70).

Second-round leaders Bubba Watson and Retief Goosen both had 72s Saturday and dropped into a tie for fifth at 208.

The third round was completed despite a weather delay of nearly 75 minutes.
