Bubba leads Deutsche Bank Championship

Bubba Watson holds a one shot lead going into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC Boston today.

The big-hitting Florida-native hit a one-under round of 70 to go 11 under overall, one stroke ahead of five others on 10-under that include Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott.

A further shot back are World No.1 Luke Donald, South African Charles Schwartzel and Americans Webb Simpson, Gary Woodland and Jim Furyk.

At only four shots back, Phil Mickelson shot 63 in the morning session on Sunday and also cannot be counted out.

"It's always nice to be in the final group because then you know what everybody is doing. If you play slow enough, you'll be two holes back, so when you know what you have to do," said Watson, one of golf's quickest players.

"It's a good position to be in. That's where you want to be.”

"Every week, that's what we try to do, is get in the final group because that means you have a great chance."

Watson shot four birdies in his opening nine, but a run of three bogeys in five holes, as well as issues on a relatively simple par five 18th, meant his lead could have been greater going into the final day’s play.

"I gave away some shots today but made some putts," said Watson.

"I'll just go out tomorrow [Monday] and do what I've been doing. It's about staying focused, not worrying if a putt doesn't fall or somebody else starts really hot.
