A week of rest, and a 36-hole lead for Garcia

CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) Billy Horschel made a 32-foot birdie putt Saturday to close out a 7-under 63 and take a three-shot lead over Ryan Palmer into the final round of the BMW Championship.

Horschel, who had a chance to win the Deutsche Bank Championship before chunking a 6-iron from the 18th fairway on Monday, birdied 14 and 15 to take the lead. His birdie on 18 left him at 13-under 197.

A few minutes later, Palmer answered with a 30-footer on 18 to draw within three.

U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer shot a 64 to get within five, tied with Masters champion Bubba Watson (66) and one shot ahead of Rickie Fowler (66).

Second-round leader Sergio Garcia faded, shooting 72 to fall seven behind.
