Golf-Stenson leads by one in Greensboro, Love three back

GREENSBORO, North Carolina, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Swede Henrik Stenson edged to a one-stroke advantage on a crowded leaderboard after the third round at the Wyndham Championship on Saturday.

After an inconsistent first 11 holes, Stenson turned on the afterburners, picking up three consecutive birdies from the 13th before adding another at the 17th for a four-under-par 66 at Sedgefield Country Club.

The 2016 British Open champion posted a 16-under 194 total, with Americans Webb Simpson, Kevin Na and Ollie Schniederjans hot on his heel at 15-under.

Davis Love III, at 53 seeking to become the oldest winner in PGA Tour history, shot 67 to trail by three shots.

Love, already the third oldest winner after his success here two years ago, surged into contention with an outward nine of four-under 31, but he stalled on in the inward half.
