LAS VEGAS — Bryson DeChambeau birdied four of the last six holes Saturday for a share of the lead with Peter Uihlein in the Shriners Hospitals For Children Open.

DeChambeau shot a 6-under 66 to match Uihlein at 16-under 197 at TPC Summerlin. Uihlein, the leader after each of the first two rounds, had a 68.

DeChambeau has four PGA Tour victories, winning three times last season. Uihlein is winless on the PGA Tour.

Lucas Glover was a stroke back after a 61 that he capped with his second eagle of the day. He eagled the par-5 13th on his opening nine and then closed with another eagle on the par-5 ninth. Glover was a stroke off the course record set by J.J. Henry in 2014 and matched by Rod Pampling in 2017. Chip Beck shot a tournament-record 59 in 1991 at Sunrise.

Defending champion Patrick Cantlay had a 63 to join Robert Streb (68) at 14 under.

Jordan Spieth remained at 8 under in his season debut, shooting even-par 71.
