MONTREAL There doesn't appear to be any stopping Jim Furyk from claiming a third RBC Canadian Open title.
"The guys that are out there who have played well for three days are all capable," said Furyk. "Timmy Clark's got a lot of experience. Kyle's won before.
The 44 year old Furyk steamrolled his way to a bogey free 65 in the third round at Royal Montreal on Saturday to go to 15 under par 195 and take a three shot lead over South African Tim Clark, while crowd favourite Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., saw his hopes sag with a three putt on the 18th to fall seven strokes off the lead.

Coming off a final round 65 to finish fourth at the British Open last Sunday, Furyk has had only one bogey, on the fourth hole of the first round, at Royal Montreal.
But the galleries were watching DeLaet, Canada's top player who is trying to become the first Canadian to win his national open since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
He will play the final round in a threesome with Clark, whose only Tour win was the 2010 Players Championship, and Kyle Stanley, whose lone win was at the 2012 Phoenix Nike Jogger For Men
"Jim is obviously in control of his game right now, but if someone posts something 13, 14 or 15 you never know what could happen," he said. "I'm just going to give it my best. I've got 35 million people pulling for me, so that's pretty cool."
If DeLaet was dejected or angry at himself, it didn't show when he met the media off the 18th green. And he wasn't about to concede defeat despite the gap with the leaders.
In his career, Furyk has won 10 of 25 times when leading after three rounds.
The 32 year old DeLaet missed a par putt on the second and but kept himself afloat until he sank a long putt for eagle on the par 5 12th. He followed with a birdie on the 14th to get to 10 under, but then put his tee shot on the 15th into a hazard for bogey.
The third round was more complicated, but he cited up and down saves for par on the first, sixth, 11th and 16th for keeping his hot play alive.
shot lead at Canadian Open
"The first couple of days I struck the ball really well and never had myself in too much trouble," he said. "Today I found a way to score and get the ball in the hole."
"I kept plugging away," said DeLaet. "I knew I wasn't that far off and if I could just finish a couple under par maybe I'd have a shot (on Sunday.)
But after raising hopes as he and Furyk tied the course record playing together with Matt Kuchar in the second round, he managed only an even par 70 to stay at 8 under in a tie with Joe Durant (67), Scott Brown (69) and Tim Petrovic (72).
Jamie Lovemark, whose best finish so far this season was a tie for 28th in January, shot 67 to take fourth place at 9 under.
Clark is coming off a strong showing at the John Deere Classic, where he tied for fifth, helping to turn around a middling season that included a problem with his left elbow that needed a cortisone injection.
"It's always great to get off to a good start," said Clark. "Saturdays are normally the toughest day to score on, so you dream of a start like that."

He said a key to closing out the US$5.7 million tournament will be "not really worrying about what position I'm in. Not looking at the leaderboard too much. Going out there and trying to attack the golf course the same way I have the first three days.
"The guys out there have all played well. They've played good rounds. You saw Graham and I shoot 7 under (on Saturday). There is a good round out there, so guys can go out there and shoot a low one and definitely put heat on the last group."
Clark had the low round of the day at 64 to move to 12 under. Stanley has been near the lead all week and shot 68 to take third place at 10 under par.
Clark got off to a phenomenal start, with a birdie on the first and an eagle on the second, and then ran off three birdies on the final six holes. The 38 year old's experience likely makes him the most dangerous challenger.
"Disappointing to three putt the last. I really wanted to make that birdie and got over aggressive. But it was a fun day. The crowds were amazing out there. Hopefully, I can do something special."
will have the edge in experience. But he cautioned that the soft greens and fairways at Royal Montreal have made for low scoring and that anyone close is a threat.
A third win would put him in a tie for second all time with Tommy Armour (1927, 1930 and 1934), San Snead (1938, 1940 and 1941) and Lee Trevino (1971, 1977 and 1979). Leo Diegel won four titles in the 1920s.
A forecast of thunderstorms may complicate the final round on Sunday, but Furyk is in solid position for his first PGA win since the Tour Championship in 2010.
"I noticed there aren't many leaderboards on the course, that might be a good thing."
The crowd gave him a rousing ovation as the bearded DeLaet walked up the 18th fairway, but he got too aggressive on a 10 foot birdie putt and then missed a short one Nike Jogger Fit for par.
Furyk won the world's third oldest national championship in 2006 at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club and followed with a win in 2007 at Angus Glen in Markham, Ont.
