Stenson Shaky on Back Nine; Remains in Command to Lead by Four

Henrik Stenson, after a shaky back nine on Saturday. Is four strokes clear; at 11-under, of Dustin Johnson heading into the final round of the 2013 FedEx Cup, Tour Championship. 18 holes away from clinching the FedEx Cup, and the $10-million pay day that comes along with it.

Beginning the day at 10-under par. Stenson would start out hot on the front nine, carding four birdies. Going out in 31 and taking his score to 14-under for the tournament.

The back nine is where things started to get a little shaky for Stenson.

After a bogey on the par-4, 10th. He would go on to card only one birdie, to three more bogeys on No. 14, 16 and 18.

Stenson's closest competitor Dustin Johnson, was able to capitalize on those bogeys, carding three birdies of his own on the back nine. Narrowing the gap to four strokes heading into Sunday.

Leading by nine shots at one point today, Stenson will be paired with Johnson on Sunday. Well on his way to capturing the FedEx Cup.

For Johnson, he has made the most of this week at East Lake. As he was the man into this week's elite field of the top-30 in the FedEx Cup rankings.

The stage is now set at the Tour Championship, as Henson leads Johnson by four. Steve Stricker by five as well as four other players sitting at 4-under, at East Lake Golf Club.
