Graham DeLaet shot a third round 68 to move to within four strokes of the lead at the Puerto Rico Open on Saturday.

The Weyburn, Sask., golfer had five birdies and just a single bogey to leave him all alone in eighth place at 9-under par, four shots back of George McNeill.

McNeill had a 5-under 67 to take a one-shot lead over Henrik Stenson and Kevin Stadler going into Sunday's final round.

McNeill, at 13-under 203, is trying to win for the first time since the Frys.com Open in 2007 when he was a PGA Tour rookie.

Stenson had a 65, while Stadler shot a 66.

Ryo Ishikawa, in Puerto Rico because he failed to qualify for the World Golf Championship this week at Doral, shot a 69 and will go into the final round just three shots out of the lead. Ishikawa has never finished higher than a tie for fourth on the PGA Tour. He is trying to become the fifth straight player in his 20s to win on the PGA Tour.
