PALM HARBOR, Fla., March 17 (UPI) -- Retief Goosen fired a 6-under-par 65 and Jim Furyk countered with a 5-under 66 Saturday, tying for the lead after three rounds of the Transitions Championship.

The pair finished the day at 11-under 202, one stroke ahead of the rest of the field.

Goosen won the Transitions event in 2009. Furyk was the 2010 champion.

Sang-Moon Bae held the lead until stumbling to a triple-bogey at the par-five 16th. He bounced back with a birdie on 17, ending the day with a 3-under 68, good for a second-place tie.

Second-round leader Jason Dufner joined him at minus-10 with an even-par 71.

Sharing fifth place at 9-under 204 were Ken Duke (69) and John Mallinger (66).

Luke Donald, who could reclaim the world's top ranking if he wins, finished three rounds tied for seventh with Ernie Els and Chez Reavie at 8-under par.
