Brendon de Jonge had more birdies than people in his gallery Saturday at the AT&T National to take a one-shot lead over Tiger Woods and two others.
De Jonge had three birdies for a 2-under 69 on a bizarre day at Congressional. An overnight wind storm toppled trees, leading tournament officials to keep spectators and all but essential volunteers off the course. Except for Woods, most players had no one watching.
De Jonge was at 7-under 206 as he goes for his first PGA Tour win.
Woods got within one shot of the lead with four birdies on his opening 10 holes, but no closer. He had a 67 and was one shot back, along with Bo Van Pelt (67) and S.Y. Noh (69).
