FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- Sergio Garcia survived the fast, slippery greens of Bethpage Black for a 2-under 69 and a two-shot lead in The Barclays.

Garcia was three shots behind Nick Watney after 10 holes Saturday and had the lead three holes later when Watney struggled off the tee. The Spaniard played bogey-free over the final eight holes, and stretched his margin to two shots when Watney three-putted the 18th for a 71.

Garcia was at 10-under 203 as he goes for his second straight PGA Tour win.

Players described the greens as being difficult to hold and even harder to putt. Tiger Woods three-putted four times and had a 72 that left him six shots behind. Also six behind was Phil Mickelson, who played in the morning and had a 67.
