Reed out in front in New Jersey

11th August 2019, 10:11 by Tom Hill

American Patrick Reed says he can hold onto his one-shot lead as he prepares to play the final round of The Northern Trust.

The 29-year-old will start Sunday's final round on 14-under par after he carded a round of 67 on Saturday.

Reed started the day two strokes back but he made birdies at the first, 5th, 6th, 8th and 13th holes.

He is now one clear of Mexico's Abraham Ancer, while Jon Rahm and Brandt Snedeker share third, two shots behind Reed.

Justin Rose and Harold Varner III are just one shot further back on 11-under but Reed believes he can go all the way this weekend.

He told the official PGA Tour website: "From the fairway, you can attack (this golf course). It's one of those things that you just have to be smart and play this golf course smart. You have to give yourself opportunities and I feel like I've been doing that this week."

Reed had to take a three-week break earlier this season but claims he is now back to his best after 'overthinking' his game.

"Earlier this year I was thinking too much," he added.

"There was a lot of stuff going on in my mind, whether on full swing, putting, game management. I thought I was doing a lot of things really well but the numbers were not producing."
