2010 US Open winner Graeme McDowell has surged up the leader board to join American Jim Furyk in top spot at this year's event in San Francisco.
While Tiger Woods has waned, five players are within three shots of the leaders, including Lee Westwood with day three's best round of 67 moving the Englishman up from 29th.
Moving day at the Open, and only one of the trio of overnight leaders would still be at the top by the end of round three, and it wasn't Tiger Woods.
Woods’ day went from commanding to unheard of with only one birdie, six bogeys and a share of 14th.
But as Woods slipped away, 42-year-old 2003 winner Jim Furyk was steady with an even par round of 70.
Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell started the day two shots behind but emerged as a challenger that stayed the distance with a round of two under par.
Only two of the world's top five players even made the cut, but John Peterson made the 13th look easy.
And an eagle from two-time champion Ernie Els has the big easy tied for fourth.
But it's another couple of former winners that have their noses in front into the final day.
