Garcia takes lead of Deutsche Bank

NORTON, Mass. (AP) — A good start and a great finish was enough for Sergio Garcia to take the lead Saturday in the Deutsche Bank Championship.

After a great start Friday, Phil Mickelson cooled off with a 71.

On another day of soft conditions and plenty of birdies on the TPC Boston, 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, the Swede who is popping up on every leaderboard.

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.
