DUBLIN, Ohio – Bubba Watson has been coming to Muirfield Village since his rookie year on the PGA Tour. Nine years later, he might finally have figured it out.

He had a mere five rounds in the 60s in his previous eight trips. But he shot a 3-under-par 69 Saturday for his third straight round in the 60s at the Memorial and was at 12-under 204 for 54 holes.

Masters champion Watson leads Scott Langley (67) by one stroke. Both are left-handers.

The most famous Lefty, Phil Mickelson (72) was 10 shots out of the lead while coping with reports he is involved in a federal investigation of insider trading. Mickelson confirmed FBI agents approached him after the first round Thursday.

Ryan Moore (72) of Puyallup was tied for 14th place at 6 under.

Michael Putnam (73) of University Place was tied for 60th at 1 over; former Washington Husky Richard H. Lee (76) was tied for 72nd at 4 over; and Kyle Stanley (80) of Gig Harbor was tied for 74th at 6 over.

Lewis has a 63

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Stacy Lewis moved into position to take the No. 1 ranking in the world, shooting a bogey-free, 8-under 63 to match the 36-hole record in the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

The second-ranked Lewis had a 12-under 130 total at Stockton Seaview. Fellow American Christina Kim (67) was at 11 under.

A victory Sunday would guarantee Lewis the No. 1 ranking, which Inbee Park has held for 59 straight weeks after taking it from Lewis. Park (70) is six strokes off the lead.

Garwood takes lead

DES MOINES, Iowa – Doug Garwood shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-shot lead after the second round of the Principal Charity Classic, an event on the 50-and-older Champions Tour. Garwood had an 11-under 133 total at Wakonda Club.

Michael Allen (66) was in second place.

Rick Fehr (70) from Seattle was tied for 15th place at 5 under. Jeff Coston (72) of Blaine and Kirk Triplett (71), a graduate of Pullman High, were among the players tied for 19th at 4 under.

Other tournament

• Second-ranked Henrik Stenson of Sweden shot an 8-under 64 in the Nordea Masters for a share of the third-round lead with England’s Eddie Pepperell (65) in Malmo, Sweden. They were at 13-under 203.
