Abstract (Document Summary)

Jodie Mudd strung together three straight birdies on the back nine Saturday to overtake Tim Simpson and move into a one-stroke lead in the third round of the $953,842 St. Jude golf tournament at Memphis, Tenn.

Mudd, a six-time runner-up who is still seeking his first PGA Tour win, chopped two strokes off par on the front nine, pulled even with Simpson with birdies at the par-4 14th and par-3 15th, then grabbed the lead with a birdie on the par-5 16th.

The tournament purse, guaranteed at $750,000, jumped $203,842 Saturday when corporate sponsor Federal Express added $1 for each package over 750,000 it handled Friday. That increased the first prize from $135,000 to $171,692.
