J.J. Henry birdied the final hole to take a one-point lead Saturday in the Barracuda Championship, the PGA Tour’s only modified Stableford event.
Henry had a 41-point total at Montreux Golf and Country Club, scoring 17 points in the third round with nine birdies and a bogey. Players receive eight points for an albatross, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double-bogey or worse.
Henry won the 2012 event for the last of his two PGA Tour titles. He’s 150th in the FedEx Cup standings, with only top 125 advancing the first event in the playoffs.
David Toms and Sweden’s Jonas Blixt were tied for second. 48-year-old Toms had 10 birdies and two bogeys in an 18-point round. Blixt had a 16-point day.
The best-placed Australian is Rod Pampling, who is tied 41st, 21 points off the pace.
