Matt Every made a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 5-under 67 and a one-stroke lead over money leader Michael Sim after the third round of the season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship on Saturday. Every, 49th on the money list, is trying to move into the final top 25 - the cutoff for 2010 U.S. PGA Tour cards. He had a 16-under 200 total on the Daniel Island Club's Ralston Creek Course to put himself in position to take the $180,000 first-place check. Sim, a three-time winner from Australia who has earned a tour-record $536,142, shot a 67. "I played much better than yesterday after working hard on the driving range last night," Sim said. "I played great for the first 12 holes, I gave myself a lot of chances. The only long putt I made was on No. 17, so I feel great about today's round." Countryman Cameron Percy shot 70 and was fourth at 12 under.
