Sergio Garcia shot a third round -6 under par 65 to ease him into a two shot lead going into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, with a -19 under par total. Sergio said patience was the key; "You could make a lot of birdies if everything went exactly the right way, kind of like it went on the back nine for me. But you have to be patient and just wait for the right time. We can't control the weather, and 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 6-under. Like a true golfer should talk, you always feel like you leave something out there, but I feel like I played nicely. I feel like obviously two or three putts felt like they maybe deserved a little better than they got. But I hit good putts. And sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't. But I think that maybe with the lead and shooting 6 under today, I would have taken it this morning. I can't be disappointed with that." Just one shot off the lead is Henrik Stenson, his third round of -5 under par 66 gave him a tournament total of -17 under par. Henrik thinks the low scoring will continue tomorrow;  " There's heaps of low scores out there, you have to keep making birdies if you want to have anything to do with this tournament. Today was no different. It's going to be the same tomorrow. I'm sure everyone is coming at us from all different angles." Tied in third place at -16 under par are Graham DeLaet and Steve Stricker. Graham fired in a -9 under par 62, and looks to be in good form. That score should secure a spot in the Presidents Cup team for him. Graham spoke about his incredible round, especially as he arrived late; "It was an incredible day, it's one of those days that it doesn't come along as often as you'd like. I'm kind of a routine guy, so I definitely would prefer to be here on my regular time and go through everything how I always do. But at the same time, like I said, I wasn't in panic mode. Once I got to the golf course I knew I had enough time. Last week definitely helped, Sunday, I mean that was a tough golf course. The wind was up there and I was able to put together a nice round. And just coming in here this week I was really feeling good about the way I was hitting it and the way I was putting it, and when you can make a few putts early, especially you can just get a little bit more confidence going. It was just a fun day. I just hope that I can have half that kind of day tomorrow."  Steve also had his eye on the Presidents Cup team; " My goal this week was to make the Presidents Cup team, on my merit. So it's provided a lot of incentive to me to play well here." Tiger Woods is thirteen shots off the lead, and Phil Mickelson is now eleven shots adrift, nothing doing for these two today. Surprising seeing as the wet conditions let officials give the contestants lift, clean and drop. Players who missed the cut, and are now out of the FedExCup play-offs are: No. 71 John Rollins, No. 78 Martin Flores, No. 79 Scott Brown, No. 81 Luke Guthrie, No. 82 Robert Garrigus, No. 83 Derek Ernst, No. 88 Brian Harman, No. 93 Greg Chalmers, No. 94 Erik Compton and No. 99 William McGirt.
