PGA Tour: Louis Oosthuizen and Brendon Todd are tied for the lead at the HP Byron Nelson Championship

Louis Oosthuizen has one of the best swings in the game, and he is putting his swing to work this week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.  Through 54-holes, Oosthuizen is tied for the lead with Brendon Todd at 10-under.

Oosthuizen fired a six-under 64 on Saturday to tied Todd atop the leaderboard.  His round began with bogeys on one and four, but he made the turn at one-under after birdieing holes five through seven.  A back-nine 30, which included five birdies, put Oosty in position for his first win on the PGA Tour since the 2010 Open Championship.

Todd birdied the final hole on Saturday to tie Oosthuizen for the 54-hole lead.  He is having his best season on the PGA Tour, and a win today would be the first of his career.

Gary Woodland, Mike Weir, and James Hahn are tied for third place at nine-under.  Woodland’s game is trending in the direction of a win, and Weir is looking for his best finish in four years.  Hahn is ready to capture his first top-10 of the season, and also his first win of his career.

Graham DeLaet, Padraig Harrington, Marc Leishman, and Morgan Hoffman are tied for sixth place at eight-under.  The leaderboard is packed with old and young talent, which will make for an exciting final round at the Byron.
