FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) Rickie Fowler kept bogeys off his card for the second straight day and closed with a 5-foot birdie putt for a 3-under 68, giving him a one-shot lead over Patrick Reed going into the final round of The Barclays.

Fowler had three par putts of 10 feet or more. He has gone 45 straight holes without a bogey at Bethpage Black.

Along with having a chance to win his first PGA Tour event in a year, Fowler is in prime position to earn a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

He was at 9-under 204.

Reed overcame a stretch of bogeys early for a 71, missing birdie chances on the last two holes.

Adam Scott had a 65, the low score of the tournament, and was two shots back.
