Brendon Todd moved a step closer to completing a rare PGA Tour feat after opening up a two-shot lead at the RSM Classic in Georgia.
Todd, looking to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2006 to win three consecutive PGA Tour events, posted a bogey-free 62 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island.

The American, who was world No 525 until he followed victory at the Bermuda Championship by winning the Mayakoba Classic on Monday, heads into the final round on 18 under and two clear of the chasing pack.
Webb Simpson is one of two players sharing second with Colombia's Sebastien Munoz, with DJ Trehan a further stroke back in fourth after bogeying two of his last seven holes.
Beginning the weekend four strokes off the lead, Todd drained a 20-footer at the first and followed a 10-foot gain at the next by posting back-to-back birdies from the fifth and picking up shots at both the seventh and ninth.
Reaching the turn in 29, Todd moved ahead with a close-range gain at the 11th and rolled in a 10-footer at the 17th, before closing his blemish-free card with a lip-out from long range at the last.
Simpson moved up the leaderboard with a blemish-free 63, while Munoz posted three birdies in a four-hole stretch from the 11th on his way to a bogey-free 66 to get within two of the lead.
Overnight leader Tyler Duncan slipped to a share of the fifth after making 18 pars to stay at 14 under for the week, with Sweden's Henrik Norlander leading the European interest and in tied-eighth.
