Rickie Fowler shot a three-under 68 to lead by one from fellow American Patrick Reed after three rounds of The Barclays tournament in New York.

Fowler sank a four-foot birdie putt on the final hole at Bethpage Black, while Australia's Adam Scott was the big mover with a 65 to go seven under.

Scotland's Martin Laird is three shots off the pace after a 69, with Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy two under (71).

Olympic gold medallist Justin Rose of England is level par after a 70.

"It's nice to finally see some putts go in," Fowler said after a bogey-free round.

"With a few putts going in, it frees up the rest of your game. I've been swinging well for a long time, and I've been waiting for the putter to catch up."

The Barclays is the first of four FedEx Cup play-off events, with the overall winner earning $10m (£7.6m).
