OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — Scott Stallings birdied the final hole for an 11-under 60 and a one-stroke lead Saturday in the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship.

Stallings' 12-foot putt on the par-4 18th caught the right edge and dropped in for the second 60 in two days at Grand National's rain-softened Lake Course.

Stallings birdied the final three holes. He had an eagle, 10 birdies and a bogey to tie the course record set last year by Jhonattan Vegas and matched by Chad Collins on Friday.

Stalling had the lowest round of his PGA Tour career and broke the tournament 54-hole record at 19-under 194. He won the last of his three tour titles in 2014.

Grayson Murray was second after his second straight 64.

Collins followed his 60 with a 69 to drop into a tie for third with Tag Ridings (63) at 17 under.

Rory Sabbatini shot a 62 to jump from 54th to a tie for 14th at 11 under.

Jim Furyk, the only player to shoot two sub-60 rounds in PGA Tour history, had his second straight 68 to get to 8 under. The 47-year-old U.S. Ryder Cup captain is playing the event after failing to qualify for the British Open.
