(CNN) -- Rory Sabbatini and John Mallinger will go into the final round of the Byron Nelson Championship in Texas tied together on 13 under-par after ending the day as they started it.

John Mallinger carded a five-under-par 65 to share the third round lead in the Byron Nelson Championship.

John Mallinger carded a five-under-par 65 to share the third round lead in the Byron Nelson Championship.

After beginning the third round in front on eight-under-par, both players carded five-under rounds of 65 at TPC Four Seasons to move two shots ahead of a group of three players.

DA Points, who also carded a 65, was joined on 11-under-par by Dustin Johnson and England's Brian Davis, who both signed for 66s.

It could have been better for Johnson, who racked up six birdies in his first eight holes to go out in 30 only to come home in 36.

Kevin Streelman is three off the pace after a 64 and tied on 10-under with Glen Day and Briny Baird while Australian Marc Leishman moved to nine-under after a 63, the lowest round of the day. Also on that mark is PGA Tour rookie James Nitties.
