Garcia fires 64 to lead Deutsche Bank tourney
Garcia, only playing in the tournament because he risked missing the next cut in the FedExCup playoffs, eagled the 18th hole to complete an impressive seven-under-par round of 64, leaving him at 13-under for the tournament.
Stenson was immaculate as he recorded a bogey free eight-under par 63, a round matched only by England's Justin Rose, the U.S. Open champion who also avoided bogeys as he moved within four shots of the lead.
Soft greens again made for low scoring and Garcia was clearly happy to have pushed himself to play in the tournament in order to make sure he was in the third event in the playoffs.
"We decided to come here and make a little bit of an extra effort of playing obviously five weeks in a row, which I don't usually enjoy very much.
PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner put himself in the frame with a second round of 66 taking him to within three shots of the lead alongside fellow American Matt Kuchar.
