DUBLIN, Ohio, June 6 (UPI) -- Matt Bettencourt shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to tie Mark Wilson for the lead after three rounds of the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.

Bettencourt and Wilson (69) were at 9-under 207 and shared a one-stroke lead over second-round co-leaders Jim Furyk and Jonathan Byrd. Both had 71s and are tied for third at 208.

Geoff Ogilvy had a 63 for the best third-round score in tournament history and was tied for fifth at 209 with Davis Love III (69).

World No. 1 Tiger Woods was tied for seventh at 211 after a 68 Saturday.

"Overall I got myself back in the tournament. I've got a shot tomorrow," said Woods, who won three straight Memorial titles from 1999-2001.

Bettencourt, a 34-year-old Tour rookie, has just one top-25 finish in his 16 starts this season.
