LA QUINTA, Calif., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Patrick Reed fired a third straight 9-under-par 63 Saturday, extending his lead to seven strokes after three rounds of the Humana Challenge.

The stellar round gave Reed a total of 27-under 189 -- the best-ever 54-hole mark in PGA Tour history.

Reed, who played Saturday's round on the PGA West's Jack Nicklaus Private Course, is seeking his second career win.
