5:33 pm on 27 September 2009

Kenny Perry has overtaken fellow American Tiger Woods, to earn a two-stroke lead after the third round of the PGA Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Perry enjoyed a dream start with birdies at the first four holes on his way to a six-under-par 64 in a testing breeze at East Lake.

His eight-under par total leaves halfway leader Woods alone in second place at six-under after a 69.

Phil Mickelson and Sean O'Hair are equal third, four shots behind.
