England's Greg Owen shares the lead after the third round of the St Jude Classic after shooting a three-under-par 67 at TPC Southwind in Memphis.

The 43-year-old picked up four birdies and stands alongside Argentina's Fabian Gomez, who also carded a 67.

Owen, aiming for his first PGA Tour title, hit his approach to five feet at the last before sinking the putt.

American pair Scott Brown (68) and Brooks Koepka (71) are a shot back on eight under.

Koepka got to 10 under at one stage but finished with a one-over 71 in swirling conditions.

Scotland's Russell Knox, who was three off the lead after the second round, shot a three-over-par 73 to finish three under for 54 holes.

Owen, 43, who lives in Florida, has missed five of 12 cuts on tour so far this season.

The Tennessee event is the final tournament on the PGA Tour before the US Open begins at Chambers Bay on Thursday.
