Fiji's Vijay Singh shot a third round 69 to move into a four-way tie for the lead at the Funai Classic alongside Scott Verplank, Stewart Cink and John Rollins.

Verplank and Cink both shot rounds of 66 and Rollins fired a 67 to share top spot at 18-under.

David Peoples is two shots behind in fifth, while Davis Love III and Rocco Mediate are tied for sixth at 15 under.

World number one Tiger Woods, who equalled a 54-year-old record after making his 113th consecutive cut, spoiled his card with three bogeys in the final five holes.

"There were a lot of holes where there was a cross wind and where it was into the wind," said Singh.

"My putter saved me today. I had one or two really long putts for birdies and just hung in there.

"You can't ask for any better position - I'm leading going into the last day."

In strong winds, the Magnolia Course greens became slicker making scoring more difficult with Woods needing two three-putts in a three-hole stretch on the back nine.

"I drove it great all day," said Woods.

"But I hit my irons horrifically - I left myself some tough putts.

"I didn't give myself good looks at putts. My iron game has been carrying me all year. Now I'm driving it good and my iron game leaves me. Welcome to golf."

Singh trails Woods by $171,239 on the PGA Tour money list with Love, the only other player with a realistic chance of finishing top of the money list when the season ends at the Tour Championship in two weeks' time.
