Chris Stroud entered Saturday's third round trailing by five strokes but birdied four consecutive holes at one stretch to finish the day tied for the lead with Ryan Moore.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Chris Stroud and Ryan Moore both overcame mistakes and bogeys on the back nine Saturday to take a share of the lead at 12-under 204 heading into the final round of the CIMB Classic.

Stroud, who started the day five strokes back, surged into contention after making five birdies on the front nine -- including four in a row -- before hitting into the water on the 12th hole and carding two bogeys.

Moore opened up a three-shot lead on the back nine, only to bogey four of five holes to give it right back.

Overnight leader Keegan Bradley looked nothing like the golfer who shot 65 and 66 in the first two rounds, hitting a 4-over 76 to fall back to a share of sixth place.
