Lee credits a change in putter for his success, “Honestly, couple months play bad my putting, so a lot of lose momentum and not play well, but this week I change putter, Callaway, and so that help for me this week. More keep momentum and keep positive, so that putter help for me a lot this week.”

54-hole leader Sam Burns carded a 2-under 70 to end the event in 2nd with -22.  Burns moves to No. 5 in the FedExCup standings.
