(Reuters) - Bill Haas carded a four-under-par 67 to earn a one-stroke lead over Graham DeLaet after the third round of the Valspar Championship in Florida on Saturday.

Haas, a six-times winner on the PGA Tour, collected five birdies with one bogey on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor to post an eight-under 205 total.

Canadian DeLaet carded a 68 to improve to seven-under, within sight of his first PGA Tour victory.

Charley Hoffman and Ryan Moore trail by three shots, while Steve Stricker, the joint halfway leader, is part of a group sitting four behind.
