Sergio Garcia continued his serene progress on a turbulent day at the Deutsche Bank Championship as a six under par 65 put him two strokes clear heading into the final round.
The Spaniard has been consistenly excellent at TPC Boston, his 19-under total from efforts of 65, 64 and 65 putting him two clear of Sweden’s Henrik Stenson.
A bogey at the par-four 14th – the same hole at which he had a double on Saturday – proved to be the only blemish for the Spaniard as he sunk seven birdies on a day of low scoring.
That came after thunderstorms in Massachusetts forced a restart of third round; however, soft conditions ultimately ensured the players had more to work with.
Another who prospered on the third day of four was Stenson, who is currently top of the Race to Dubai standings on The European Tour.
The Swede is in sensational form at the moment, which continued today as he dropped just one stroke in a round featuring gains at one, two, four, 11, 16 and 18.
Tournament officials announced they would be sending the players out early in threesomes tomorrow, starting from the first and 10th tees, in a bid to beat poor weather anticipated.
