Jim Furyk shot a superb nine-under par 63 to move into a one-shot lead after the third round at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, California.
On another, glorious day on the west coast, tailor-made for low scoring, the Ryder Cup veteran took full advantage as he posted nine birdies in a blemish-free round at Pebble Beach to move one shot clear of Matt Jones who  followed up Friday's 66 with a 67 - which included six birdies in seven holes but also two bogeys to check his serene progress.

Furyk (pictured) did not show much sign of rust for someone competing for the first time since the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in late September. Now he has another chance to end a winless drought of more than four years - but he will be wary; he has failed to win on the last eight occasions when he had at least a share of the 54-hole lead.
Overnight leader Brandt Snedeker also remains in the hunt as he posted a 67 with a bogey on the par four third hole at Pebble Beach his only dropped shot and he sits two shots off the pace.
The highest-placed European are Germany's Marcel Siem - who matched Furyk's 63 with seven birdies and an eagle on the par five to lie six shots behind the leader - alongside Ireland's Shane Lowry, who shot an excellent 67 at Spyglas Hill.
