Robert Streb extended his lead to three shots following a 3-under 67 at the RSM Classic on Saturday.

The 33-year-old went bogey-free for the second straight round at Sea Island Golf Club during another blustery day on the course. He hit 12 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation to maintain his position at the top.

Streb will be looking to secure his second win on the PGA Tour on Sunday. His first came in 2014 when he shot 63 in the final round to win the RSM Classic (formerly the McGladrey Classic) in a playoff.

Sea Island resident Zach Johnson birdied three of his final five holes to climb into a share of second. The 44-year-old is also looking to snap a winless drought, with his last victory coming in 2015 at the Open Championship.

Here's how the top of the leaderboard sits ahead of Sunday's final round:

Place Player To Par R3 Score
1 Robert Streb -17 67
T2 Zach Johnson -14 65
T2 Bronson Burgoon -14 67
4 Emiliano Grillo -13 65
T5 Kevin Kisner -12 66
T5 Kyle Stanley -12 68
T5 Camilo Villegas -12 70

Camilo Villegas, who played in the final group in Round 3, failed to keep pace with the leaders and dropped into a share of fifth with his even-par 70.

Notables Jason Day (9-under) and Matt Kuchar (9-under) both shot 67 on Day 3 to land inside the top 15 but still need a miracle on Sunday to have any chance at winning.

Webb Simpson - the top-ranked player in the field - shot 68 and sits outside the top 40 at 5-under par.
