If I was Matt Kuchar, having a three-stroke lead on Zach Johnson wouldn’t feel like enough. Never mind that Johnson is tied for 10th.

Johnson, the defending Colonial champion, obviously loves Colonial Country Club as he rarely shoots a score higher than 69 here. He finished off a second round 65 and then posted a 68 on Saturday.

But Kuchar is the top-ranked player in the tournament with an Official World Golf Ranking of 13.

There’s a group of four players tied at 10-under, one back of Kuchar. Among them, the only one with a PGA Tour win is Boo Weekley. Lamar University product Chris Stroud, Graham Delaet and Matt Every are all looking for their first PGA wins.

First-time winners has been a big-time trend this year, so don’t be surprised to see Every, Stroud or Delaet in the mix on Sunday.
