The 2012 Barclays: Sergio Garcia Overtakes Nick Watney For Lead Heading Into Sunday

After 54 holes of play, Sergio Garcia has finally risen above Nick Watney by two strokes (-10) with one round left to play at the 2012 Barclays.

Watney, who had an even round Saturday, sits at 8-under with Kevin Standler (-7), Brandt Snedeker, and Bob Estes (-6 each) rounding out the top five.

Garcia had five birdies on the day, but Watney definitely did him some favors, bogeying four of his final nine holes.

Vijay Singh took quite the tumble, falling down 19 spots thanks to a 5-over round while Phil Mickelson was one of the day's more notable risers as he moved up 42 spots and now sits tied for tenth.

Savannah native Brian Harman (-5) still remains in striking distance, sitting in sixth place with four birdies plus an eagle on the seventh hole.
