Norton, Massachusetts (Sports Network) - Sergio Garcia put together a 6-under 65 on Sunday to extend his lead to two shots after three rounds of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Garcia, an 8-time winner on the PGA Tour, ended 54 holes at 19-under-par 194. He matched the tournament's 54-hole scoring record that Louis Oosthuizen set last year.

Henrik Stenson carded a 66 to move into second place at minus-17. Steve Stricker and Graham DeLaet had two of the best rounds of the day, which helped them soar into a share of third.

Stricker eagled the last for an 8-under 63, while DeLaet birdied five of the last seven for a 9-under 62. They are tied at 16-under 197 at TPC Boston.

PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner (66) and Roberto Castro (68) share fifth place at minus-15.

The round was completed in near darkness after a lengthy weather delay earlier in the day. Some players had started their third rounds, but the long stoppage forced officials to erase that play and have players go out in threesomes of split tees.

Otherwise, the round would not have finished on Sunday. And with more bad weather forecast for Monday, final round tee times have been moved up in an effort to beat that weather.
