Stuart Appleby treaded water in round three of the Barracuda Championship, piecing together a 3-under-par 36-33=69 which was good for 8 points, entering the final round with 32 points to his credit, five off the pace set by Greg Owen. The former Auburn standout, who has just one career victory on the Web.com Tour, moved 29 spots into a tie for ninth by earning 10 points. Still, he managed to circle five birdies which help offset two bogeys.

American Ricky Barnes is one point behind the top-three after gathering a day's best 15 points. Pars don't affect the score.

Owen starred on Saturday, scoring 14 points in the penultimate round to top the leaderboard in Reno, Nevada. He fired a 66 overall that featured nine birdies, including a run of five straight from holes 12 through 16.

At age 45, Owen would become the second-oldest first time victor since 1970 if he pulled out the victory in Sunday's final round at the Montreux golf course.

Compatriot Tim Wilkinson missed the cut despite a second round of 69 which saw him collect eight points.

Appleby, a nine-time PGA Tour victor, only missed one fairway in the third round and needed only 23 putts.
