Spencer Levin lost a four-stroke lead but held on to a hairline advantage while Tiger Woods missed several chances to inch closer to the leaders on Saturday in the Memorial at Muirfield Village in Dublin Ohio.
Levin hit a three-under 69 on Saturday, matching the low round of the day, to move to eight-under 208. Just a shot behind was Rory Sabbatini, who carded a 71.
Quail Hollow winner Rickie Fowler came up with a 69 for a three-day aggregate of 211.
In fourth at 212 was Woods, who bungled five birdie putts from within 10 feet on the way to a 73.
Ryo Ishikawa (71), Henrik Stenson (71) and Jonathan Byrd (72) were at 213 while Vijay Singh shot a 69 and was tied with six others at 214.
Levin eagled the fifth and opened up a four-stroke lead when he holed a chip from 30 yards for birdie on No. 10. But he bogeyed Nos. 12 and 16 as his pursuers closed in.
Sabbatini started the round bogey-birdie-bogey but played steady down the stretch.
