RENO, Nev. — Geoff Ogilvy got up-and-down for birdie from a greenside bunker on the par-5 closing hole to take a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Barracuda Championship.

In the modified Stableford event, players receive eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse.

Ogilvy, the Australian who won the 2006 U.S. Open, had seven birdies and two bogeys in a 12-point round at Montreux to push his total to 35. He’s making his first appearance in the event since 2002 after failing to qualify for the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational.

Nick Watney, the leader after each of the first two rounds, was tied for second with Jason Allred at 32 points. Watney, a Davis High graduate, scored six points, and Allred had 14.

Brandon Steele was fourth with 30 points after a 10-point round.

John Mallinger, Lee Janzen and David Lingmerth had 28 points.

Mallinger had a hole-in-one on No. 11 in a 19-point day. He used a 9-iron on the 155-yard hole.

Janzen scored 13 points, and Lingmerth had 12.

Ogilvy won the last of his seven PGA Tour titles in 2010. He has only two top-25 finishes this season and is 151st in the FedEx Cup standings, with the top 125 getting into the first playoff event.

Watney is making his first appearance in the event since 2008. He’s 124th in the FedEx Cup race as players fight for spots in The Barclays, the playoff opener he won in 2012 for the last of his five PGA Tour titles.
