Russell Henley left everyone in his wake with three straight birdies to start the back nine, pivotal in turning a four-shot deficit into a three-shot lead by the end of the day in the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

He is going for his fourth PGA Tour victory. He has never had a lead this large with 18 holes to play.
