DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Bubba Watson put himself in position for his third win of the year Saturday with a 3-under 69 to take a one-shot lead over Scott Langley at the Memorial.

Watson has never finished in the top 20 at Muirfield Village. Even with a bogey on the last hole, he had his third straight round in the 60s and was at 12-under 204.

It will be an all-lefty final pairing with Langley, who has gone 40 straight holes without a bogey and had a 67.

The most famous Lefty, Phil Mickelson, had a 72 while coping with reports he is involved in an insider trading investigation.

Hideki Matsuyama of Japan birdied his last hole for a 69 and was two shots behind. Adam Scott was three shots back after a 68.
