Left-hander Watson moved to 17-under for the tournament with England's Justin Rose, who shot a 69, and American Keegan Bradley, who made 66, tied for second at 14-under.

Watson's round included three bogeys and six birdies after he started with an eagle on the par-five first hole as he kept up his bid for a first WGC win.

Rose, who also has yet to win in the elite series, ended his round with a disappointing three putt for bogey on the 18th.

Tiger Woods (68) and Rory McIlroy (65) both moved up the leaderboard and ended the day eight shots behind Watson, tied for eighth.
