NORTON, MASSACHUSETTS (AFP) - Sergio Garcia swooped for an eagle at the final hole on Saturday to seize the second-round lead at the USPGA Tour's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Spanish golfer rolled in an 18-foot eagle at the 18th to cap a seven-under-par 64 and erase his only mis-step of the day, a double-bogey on the par-four 14th.

Prior to that, he carded seven birdies and was in the clubhouse with a one-stroke lead on 13-under 129.

He was one stroke in front of Sweden's Henrik Stenson, who matched the low round of the tournament with an eight-under 63 that featured eight birdies, and American Robert Castro, who notched his second straight 65 for 130.
