Justin Rose
Rose has moved steadily up the leaderboard

England's Justin Rose birdied five of his first seven holes and ended with another at the last to take the lead at the Transitions Championship.

Rose made it back-to-back rounds of 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge and American Webb Simpson in Florida.

His 13-under total of 200 is one short of the 54-hole tournament record.

Scott Stallings is a further shot back alongside Gary Woodland, thanks to a hole-in-one at the eighth.

Last week's WGC Cadillac Championship winner Nick Watney bounced back from a second round of 72 to shoot a 65 for a 10-under total.

Rose began his round with a birdie at the first but followed that with two consecutive pars before four birdies in a row sent him further up the leaderboard.

He played some steady golf but failed to pick up any more shots before ensuring he finished his round on a high.

Scotland's Martin Laird is in a tie for 10th place, four shots behind Rose, following a third round of 68.
