Sergio Garcia closed with three straight birdies to shoot a 7-under 64 on Saturday, taking a four-shot lead into the third and final round of the Andalusia Valderrama Masters.
The tournament, which Garcia has won twice (2017, 2011), was reduced to 54 holes because of numerous weather-related delays.
With his bogey-free round, Garcia moved to 10 under, four shots clear of Englishman Ashley Chesters, who shot a 1-under 70.
"Hopefully we'll be able to play well tomorrow and get another win at Valderrama," Garcia said. "Hopefully I can finish it in style."
Chesters, however, is conceding nothing. "There's always a chance," he said. "There's not a lot of pressure on me."
