Danny Lee had a typically up and down round at The Barclays, the PGA Tour's end of season opener, but remains well placed.

The Kiwi No 2 shot a one-under 70 in New Jersey to get to five-under for the tournament and be in a tie for 16th.

He made four birdies and three bogeys in his third round, but it could have been much better had he not bombed the 572m par-five 13th.

Lee was just 45m short of the green for two, but took a bogey six.

He flubbed his third into the bunker, went over the back of the green with his fourth into another bunker before getting up and down for a costly bogey on a hole plenty of players were picking up shots on. He remains just four shots off the lead held by Jason Day and Jim Furyk.

Kiwi No 1 Tim Wilkinson is also in the field and shot one-over 72.

He's two-over for the event and in a tie for 71st after only narrowly making the cut.
