Stallings' performance was his third straight round without a bogey at La Quinta Country Club and enabled him to end the day at 22-under-par 194 as he seeks his third career PGA Tour victory.

Second-round co-leader Roberto Castro registered a 3-under 69, dropping into a second-place tie at minus-17 with Stewart Cink (66), Charles Howell III (67), John Rollins (64) and Charley Hoffman (67).
