Brilliant Seamus Power surges to within three of St Jude Classic lead

Fowler, the only member of the top 10 playing on the PGA Tour this week, said there was no better way to plan for a major than to be out on the course, but he will be restricted to just practice rounds now ahead of the second major of the year next week.

Cabrera Bello topped the leaderboard alongside Stewart Cink and Ben Crane after the third round and the 33-year-old from Gran Canaria is now in the hunt for his first USPGA Tour win.

American Chez Reavie is in a three-way tie for the St. Jude Classic lead as Rickie Fowler missed the cut.

Kevin Chappell had a 68 and is another shot back in a tie for sixth with Matt Jones of Australia, who shot 69, and 36-hole co-leader Chez Reavie, who had a double bogey and two bogeys on the front nine in a 72. He opened up a 3-stroke lead at 11-under after a seven-foot birdie putt on No. 5, but dropped back to the field after three bogeys on the back nine. He held a two-stroke lead on the front nine before making three bogeys coming home in a 69, while five-time PGA Tour victor Crane carded a bogey-free 68.

Americans Chad Campbell and Luke List trail by one stroke, while South African Charl Schwartzel, who had a share of the halfway lead, regressed with a 74 to fall four strokes off the pace. List made two eagles on the back nine to vault into contention. Canada's Alena Sharp (70), who was in a three-way tie for the lead with Thompson and Hyo Joo Kim, fell into a tie for fourth with world No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn (65).

Graeme McDowell matched his opening 69 to sit on two-under heading for the weekend. He missed the cut in first event also.

LPGA: Lexi Thompson shot 67 for 17-under 199 and a one-stroke lead after the third round of the Manulife Classic in Cambridge, Ontario.
