Sergio Garcia posted a six-under 65 on Sunday to finish with at 19-under 194 through three days of action at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Spaniard continues to roll with a two-shot advantage over Henrik Stenson at TPC Boston heading into the final day of the tournament.

Garcia isn't all alone, though. There are several golfers who soared into contention on Day 3 with some quality performances, including some big names.

Garcia posted seven birdies on Sunday, including a beautiful 172-yard approach shot on the 12th hole. 

The 33-year-old Spaniard hasn't placed in the top 10 since his T8 finish in the Players Championship in May and is seeking his first win of the year.

Graham DeLaet had a fantastic 18 holes of golf on Sunday, going nine-under on Day 3 alone. That included 10 birdies after posting a bogey on the par-four No. 1.  

His 20-foot putt for birdie at hole No. 9 was a beauty.

PGA Tour tweeted:

The 31-year-old Canadian has six top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this year, but no victories, and tied for second at The Barclays last weekend.

The ageless Steve Stricker also showed up on Sunday, posting an eight-under 63, which included six birdies and an eagle on the 18th. Stricker, 46, has recorded five top-10 finishes on tour this year and is currently tied for third with DeLaet.

Kevin Stadler was a another big player on moving day, as the American notched eight birdies to one bogey. That included a 27-foot putt for birdie on the No. 10, as Stadler is sitting pretty in seventh at 14 under

Dufner had a very good day as well. The 2013 PGA Championship winner birdied six of his first 10 holes on Sunday, which included a 38-foot putt at hole No. 9.

One of Day 2's leaders, Henrik Stenson continued to play well and was, at one point, in the lead on Sunday. He posted three birdies in his first four holes and two birdies (and one bogey) in his last three holes.

PGA Tour tweeted at the time:

Stenson came into the Deutsche Bank Championship with six top-10 finishes on the tour this year, including a third-place finish at the PGA Championship and second-place finish at the British Open. He's a dangerous player headed into Day 4.

After two strong days, Tiger Woods had a mediocre round on Day 3, posting a one-over 72. Woods notched four bogeys, three of which came on the back nine, and is currently tied for 47th at six-under 207.

Phil Mickelson entered the day at eight-under par but went even par on Sunday. He notched three birdies to three bogeys. The 2013 British Open winner did knock down a 16-foot putt at hole No. 12, though.

Third-round play was suspended Sunday morning due to stormy weather after only seven groups had teed off, but play was able to resume later in the morning. It should lead to plenty of exciting action on Day 4.
