Ancaster, ON (Sports Network) - Robert Garrigus fired a 6-under 64 on Saturday to take a 1-stroke lead after three rounds of the Canadian Open.
Garrigus, who will go for his second PGA Tour win on Sunday, finished 54 holes at 16-under-par 194.
His total of 194 broke the tournament's 54-hole scoring record. Arnold Palmer first set the mark of 195 in 1955 and Dean Wilson matched that total in 2010.
Second-round co-leader William McGirt posted his second straight 66 to end three rounds at minus-15. Scott Piercy, who led after round one and shared the second-round lead, shot 67 for the second day in a row and is alone in third at 14-under-par 196.
Scott Stallings and Chris Kirk both fired 7-under 63s Saturday. They share fourth place at minus-12 with Bo Van Pelt, who posted a 67 at Hamilton Golf & Country Club.
