Jonas Blixt birdied six of the last seven holes Saturday for a 5-under 66 and a share of the third-round lead with Ryan Moore and Brendon de Jonge in the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.

Moore had a bogey-free 65, and de Jonge birdied four of the last five for a 66 to match Blixt at 19-under 194 in the PGA Tour's Fall Series opener at TPC Summerlin.

Meanwhile, John Daly, tied for sixth at 10 under after a 63 on Friday, had a 15-over 86 to drop to last among the 72 players who made the cut. He had a quadruple bogey, a triple bogey, two double bogeys, six bogeys and two birdies.

"I can't remember a time when I had a stretch of so many bad holes, where I hit a couple bad shots but didn't really hit that many bad shots," Daly said. "This course, everybody shoots low, but there's times where nothing goes right."

Jimmy Walker (66) and Tim Herron (68) were five shots back.

The second Fall Series event is the Frys.com Open, which begins Thursday at CordeValle in San Martin.
