JJ Henry birdies No. 18 to lead Barracuda Championship

American JJ Henry made a tap-in birdie on the final hole of the third round to seize the lead at the PGA Tour`s Barracuda Championship on Saturday.

Henry has compiled 41 total points for a one point lead over David Toms and Sweden`s Jonas Blixt in the unique tournament, which features a Modified Stableford scoring system assigning point values to shots rather than registering a score relative to par.

The 40-year-old Henry scored 17 points in the third round after finishing with nine birdies and one bogey.

He is bidding for his second title in the event after winning in 2012 for the second of his two career USPGA Tour victories.

Toms finished with 10 birdies and two bogeys for 18 points in the third round. Blixt had seven birdies and an eagle for a 16-point performance at the Montreux Golf and Country Club.
