Seeking his first PGA Tour win, Spencer Levin will carry a six-shot lead into the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

After shooting a 3-under 68, Levin leads Webb Simpson by a half-dozen strokes at 17 under.

Simpson is at 11 under following a round of 68 on Saturday. Bubba Watson and John Huh are each a shot back of Simpson, after Watson shot 67 and Huh carded 69.

A half-dozen players are tied for fourth at 9 under, including Chris Stroud, last year's runner-up Jason Dufner, Greg Chalmers, Ben Crane and last week's heartbreaking playoff-loser Kyle Stanley.

After flirting with a missed cut on Friday, Phil Mickelson rallied on Saturday with 67 to get into a tie for 10th with John Rollins.
