RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Gary Woodland holed from a bunker and the greenside rough and hit a fairway shot within 2 inches for another of his seven birdies to take the third-round lead in the Reno-Tahoe Open with 37 points in the modified Stableford scoring system.

Brandon Steele vaulted into second place Saturday with 30 points. He played the last six holes in 7-under par under a traditional format, capping five consecutive birdies with a 33-foot chip-in for eagle on the 616-yard 18th at Montreux Golf Club.

The scoring system awards eight points for eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double-bogey or worse.

David Mathis was third with 29, followed by second-round leader Andres Romero at 27, Charlie Wi at 25, Dickey Pride 24 and Rory Sabbatini 23.
