Spieth Tied for 4th at Greenbrier

Updated: Saturday, July 6 2013, 10:56 PM CDT

But no third-round leader has gone on to win the Greenbrier Classic, now in its fourth year. The tournament has been decided by playoffs the past two years, and Stuart Appleby shot 59 in the final round to win by a stroke in 2010.

Johnson Wagner, who leads at -14, said he isn't going to stop being aggressive Sunday unless the wind picks up.

"I'm just going to try to make as many birdies as I can," he said. "This golf course, when it's firm and fast, may be one of my favorite places we play on tour."

Sweden's Jonas Blixt was four strokes behind Wagner at 10 under after shooting 67. Australians Matt Jones (66) and Steven Bowditch (69) and Texas teenager Jordan Spieth (67) were at 9 under.

Spieth overcame two early bogeys with birdies on three of the final four holes.

"To start the day, I missed the first couple of fairways so I was in a hole just trying to fix stuff," said Spieth after his third straight round of 67. "I settled down and said lets get two or three more and it turned into four or five. I'm extremely excited. I didn't expect the [birdie] on 15 and certainly on 17, but they went in for me so I'm pumped."

A win would give him his PGA Tour membership and make him eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs. He's won more than $1.1 million this year and is assured of a tour card when the new season starts in October.

Among six golfers at 8 under included Bill Haas, the winner at Congressional a week ago.

Second-round leader Matt Every bogeyed the first two holes and quickly fell off the leaderboard. He shot 74 and fell into a tie for 27th at 5 under.

Ten players were trimmed from the field after Saturday's round; 81 players had advanced after Friday's play.
