Reed steps into the lead as Johnson, Spieth falter at Liberty National
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Patrick Reed handled the strong gusts and a drier golf course at Liberty National with a 4-under 67 that gave him a one-shot lead over Abraham Ancer of Mexico going into the final round of The Northern Trust. Reed has not won since the 2018
Dustin Johnson has missed nine birdie chances from 10 feet or closer at Liberty National, which ordinarily might annoy him.
He's hitting it so well that he still leads the PGA Tour's Northern Trust Open in Jersey City, N.J.
Johnson birdied three of his last six holes Friday, finishing with an approach to 8 feet on the 489-yard closing hole, for a 4-under-par 67 that gave him a one-shot lead over Jordan Spieth (64) going into the weekend.
