NORTON, Mass. — On another day of soft conditions and plenty of birdies on the TPC Boston, Sergio Garcia opened with five birdies in seven holes, and then made an 18-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole for a 7-under 64 and a one-shot lead over Roberto Castro and Henrik Stenson at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Saturday.
Garcia was at 13-under 129, and it held up as the lead when no one could catch him on a cloudy afternoon with some light rain. Stenson had a 63, and Castro shot 65.
Tiger Woods, in the 1-2-3 grouping with Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott, made a 35-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for a 67 and was six shots back.
At Portland, Yani Tseng moved into position to end a long victory drought, shooting a 9-under 63to take a three-stroke lead into the final round of the Safeway Classic.
Tseng, the 24-year-old Taiwanese star who has 15 LPGA Tour titles and had a 109-week run at No. 1 in the world ranking, is winless in 36 events since the Kia Classic in March 2012.
