England Danny Willett and Justin Rose are three shots behind leader Patrick Reed after impressive third rounds in The Northern Trust in New Jersey.

Willett, the 2016 Masters champion, scored a 66 to go to 11 under par, with Rose signing for a 69.

Brandt Snedeker had the round of the day, his eight under par 63, which means he is in third place with Jon Rahm in Spain.

Second-round leader Dustin Johnson (74) slid back to nine, a shot behind Rory McIlroy who played a 70.

The Northern Irishman, who missed the cut at Tthe Open last month, had a mixed round with five birdies and four bogeys.

But he is only four behind Reed, who has a one-off lead over the second-placed Abraham Ancer of Mexico.

Bryson DeChambeau, who was criticized for his slow game during the second round, hit an even-par 71 to stay under six.
