He added two more on the back side to shoot 66. Schwartzel had a birdie on No. 2 (his 11th hole of the day), but he had his only bogey of the day on the par-3 eighth hole.

Starting on No. 10, Mickelson made three birdies and no bogeys on his opening nine. Amateur Braden Thornberry and former Gator Billy Horschel were among five players two shots back.

They were one stroke in front of overnight co-leader Stewart Cink, who carded a 68 for 132, with Ben Crane, victor of this tournament in Memphis, Tennessee, on 133 after a 65.

"The key to my round today was the key to anyone's round who plays well here and that is you've got to keep the ball in front of you", said the 44-year-old.

Charl Schwartzel leads after making changes to his putting. Unfortunately for the future Hall of Famer, a triple-bogey seven on the par-4 12th hole knocked him out of contention.

"I'm playing good. I'm confident on the greens".

"It was nearly like I was a rookie today because I saw". What was left was an awkward 25-foot chip to save par. He shot 68 and was three back.

Schwartzel, who finished third at The Masters, is seeking his third career victory on tour - he's won 12 times internationally - and first since he won the 2016 Valspar Championship near Tampa, Florida.

Jutanugarn finished with a three-under 69 in the final round and was tied with Thompson (72) and Chun (70) at 17-under 271.

Jobe shot a 69 in the final round to snap a winless drought that had stretched back to 1998, when he took first in a tournament in Japan. Scott McCarron tied for second with Kevin Sutherland, who holed out for eagle on No. 18. He's now ranked 137th after 12 events this year, but he has four top-25 finishes including a recent T13 at the Texas Open to help his confidence.

The American found water with his tee shot at the 15th and was four over through six holes, but did find consistency on his back nine with eight consecutive pars to finish his round.
