Sergio Garcia takes a two-shot lead into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, after carding a six-under-par 65 on day three.

The 33-year-old Spaniard offset a single bogey at 14 by posting seven birdies over the Arnold Palmer-designed TPC Boston.

Garcia, the overnight leader, has had rounds of 65-64-65, as he chases a ninth career title on the PGA Tour - but only his second in almost five and a half years.

With 18 holes remaining his nearest challenger is Swede Henrik Stenson who followed a 63 on Saturday with a 66.

Canadian Graham DeLaet and American Steve Stricker are tied-for-third - three shots off the pace - with the former registering a best-of-day 62 that included a bogey at the first hole but a back nine of 30.

The third round was suspended for more than an hour following heavy rain in Massachusetts.

Garcia said: "We can't control the weather. You've just got to go out there and try to play the best you can. And I was very happy to see that my best was six-under today.

"Hopefully I'll be able to believe in (myself) in the way I've been believing this whole weekend. If I'm able to do that I should have a chance, a good chance of winning.

"If not, then I'll fight as hard as I can to get it."

DeLaet continued his impressive form, with the Canadian having finished in a tie for second at the Barclays last week.

"It was an incredible day," said DeLaet.

"It's one of those days that it doesn't come along as often as you'd like. But it was one of those days where I was seeing the lines great and made pretty much every putt that I would expect to make, along with a couple of 20-footers."
