Late burst puts Donald in line for Boston win

European Ryder Cup wildcard Luke Donald is still in contention for victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston after equalling leader Jason Day's five-under round of 66 to stay third.

Donald (32), awarded one of Colin Montgomerie's captain's picks for the showdown with the United States at Celtic Manor next month, was five behind Day midway through his round, but he fired five birdies on the back nine to head into the final round two shots back from the Australian, who is 17 under par for the tournament. Donald is two shots ahead of Steve Stricker, who is in contention to take over from Tiger Woods as world number one -- depending on how his final round goes tomorrow.

Phil Mickelson is also a contender for the number one spot come the end of this event. The US Masters champion is tied for fifth after a four-under-par 67 took him to 12 under for the tournament.
