Bryson DeChambeau was dialled in on Saturday at The Northern Trust, as he fired an eight-under 63 to move into sole possession of the lead after three rounds at 16 under for the tournament.

"Man on a mission," he told CBS Sports after his round. "That's all."

DeChambeau leads the field by four strokes, despite the challenge mounted by Keegan Bradley at the PGA Tour event. 

Bradley, the winner of the 2011 US PGA Championship, shot the best round of the day with a nine-under 62, but he sits in second place at 12 under for the tournament.

Jamie Lovemark and Brooks Koepka, who came into Saturday playing great golf and tied for the lead, had lacklustre rounds, posting two over and one over respectively, and falling well behind DeChambeau.

Phil Mickelson, though, once again carded a good score, shooting his third consecutive 68 to sit tied for seventh at nine under. Australian Cameron Smith and American Tony Finau hold a share of third at 11 under.

Tiger Woods improved on Saturday, compiling a bogey-free round of 68, but he remains well behind the leaders and out of contention at three under.
