ATLANTA (AP) - Henrik Stenson was so flawless that he built a nine-shot lead at the turn Saturday in the Tour Championship.

Only a few glitches in his game put him back to where he started - which is still a good place to be.

Stenson made four bogeys in the rain on the back nine at East Lake and shot a 1-under 69 for a four-shot lead over Dustin Johnson going into the final day of the PGA Tour season. Johnson made two late birdies and two par saves for a 67.

Even if he were to lose the lead and finish second, Stenson would capture the FedEx Cup and the $10 million prize. Johnson narrowly got into the 30-man field, and Stenson's late bogeys gave him a real chance to win.
