Santiago, Chile (Sports Network) - Kevin Kisner fired a course-record 11-under 61 on Saturday to grab a share of the lead after three rounds at the Chile Classic.

Kisner, who did not make the cut in his previous two starts this year and is seeking his second career victory, is tied with Benjamin Alvarado (66) and second-round leader Edward Loar (69) atop the leaderboard at 17-under 199 at Prince of Wales Country Club.

Brice Garnett carded a 4-under 68 on Saturday to sit alone in fourth place at 16-under, while Troy Merritt (64), Jason Gore (66) and Danny Lee (70) share fifth at minus-14.

Merritt's 64 would have tied the previous course record set by Alex Coe, Joseph Bramlett and Paul Haley II in 2012, and also accomplished by Alvarado during his second round on Friday.
