Doc Redman earned a one-stroke lead at the Bermuda Championship thanks to his four-under-par 67 in the third round on Saturday.

Redman moved top of the leaderboard courtesy of a near-flawless display at Port Royal Golf Course, where the American holed five birdies and just one bogey in windy conditions.

The 22-year-old is seeking his maiden PGA Tour title and second top-five finish of the 2020-21 season, having tied for third at the Safeway Open.

Redman has three career top-10 placings, each of which are top-three finishes – second at the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic, T3 at the 2020 Wyndham Championship and T3 at the 2020 Safeway Open.

Ryan Armour (70) and Wyndham Clark (70) – overnight leaders following Friday's second round – ended the penultimate day a shot behind Redman at nine under through 54 holes, along with Kramer Hickok (69).

"I'm asking [caddie] Billy to get the compass out and see what the wind's doing on this putt, because you have to factor that in so much, just because the wind’s blowing so hard,” said Hickok.

"Literally you've got a putt that's half a cup out left, and the wind's off the right, it will blow it left. It's different, it's fun, and you've got to embrace it."

"It's such a feel game right now, the way the course is playing, which is a lot of fun," Hickok continued. "You don't get that a lot on this TOUR. You've got to open up the imagination and just hit different shots. It's fun."

Matt Jones (66), Brian Gay (67) and Ollie Schniederjans (69) are a stroke further back, while Adam Schenk (66), Doug Ghim (68) and Kiradech Aphibarnrat (69) are seven under.

Ryan Armour and Wyndham Clark share a one-stroke lead at the Bermuda Championship as the second round was suspended due to darkness.

Armour carded a one-under 70 and Clark fired a 68 in windy conditions as the pair moved into eight under at Port Royal Golf Course on Friday.

The round was suspended with just four players yet to get through 36 holes at the PGA Tour event.

Armour and Clark have struggled in 2020, but are in contention in Bermuda.

World number 217 Armour has missed 13 cuts in 18 events this year, while Clark has nine missed cuts in 20.

The pair hold a one-stroke lead over Kramer Hickok (68), while Ollie Schniederjans (70) and Doc Redman (71) are a stroke further back.

Denny McCarthy (67), Luke Donald (68), Roger Sloan (70), Kiradech Aphibarnrat (66), Scott Piercy (70) and overnight leader Peter Malnati (74) are at five under.

Aphibarnrat's performance was his 11th bogey-free round in 217 rounds on the PGA Tour.

Peter Malnati continued his good form, shooting an eight-under 63 to lead the Bermuda Championship by a stroke after the opening round.

The American mixed nine birdies – including five straight from the ninth hole – with one bogey at Port Royal Golf Course on Thursday.

Malnati's five straight birdies tied his career-best for most consecutive birdies in a PGA Tour round, while it marked the third straight tournament at which the 33-year-old has posted a score of 63 or better.

Having last won on the PGA Tour in 2015, Malnati entered the tournament on the back of a runner-up finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship and top-five result at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Malnati is a stroke ahead of Doug Ghim and Ryan Armour, who both produced bogey-free opening rounds.

Doc Redman, Vaughn Taylor and Chase Seiffert are a shot further back.

Hunter Mahan, the former world number four who has slipped to 1,227th in the rankings and missed the cut in 20 of his past 29 events, is among a group of eight players at five under.

Defending champion Brendon Todd could only manage an even-par 71 in the first round to be back in a tie for 80th.

Meanwhile, Fred Funk, 64, carded a two-under 69 playing in the same group as his son, Taylor, who managed a 73.
