WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Johnson Wagner has been in this situation before – and he's never failed to deliver.

At 14 under through three rounds at The Greenbrier Classic, Wagner holds a 54-hole lead for the third time in his career. At both the 2008 Shell Houston Open and 2011 Mayakoba Golf Classic, he held on for the victory.

Based on his recent play, this one may feel a little sweeter.

In his previous seven starts, Wagner has compiled six missed cuts and a withdrawal, but he credited a recent session with coach Bobby Heins for getting him back on track.

'I had a little boot camp with my coach after I missed the cut by about 30 in Hartford,' he said. 'I just feel really comfortable over the ball.'
