PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) - Bill Haas shot his second straight 4-under 67 on Saturday to build a one-shot lead over Graham DeLaet of Canada going into the final round of the Valspar Championship.

Jordan Spieth was still in the hunt, but just barely. The defending champion got going on the back nine Saturday at Innisbrook and shot 68 to wind up six shots behind.

Haas was at 8-under 205.

DeLaet had an eagle on the par-5 14th hole that sent him to a 68 to get into the last group as he goes for his first PGA Tour win. Haas and DeLaet got a little separation going into Sunday. Charley Hoffman (67) and Ryan Moore (69) were three shots behind, while Charles Howell III (70) and Steve Stricker (72) were four shots back.
