LA QUINTA, Calif. -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament, birdieing his final four holes on PGA West's TPC Stadium Course for a 5-under 67.

The 25-year-old Saunders, from Fort Collins, Colo., had a 17-under 199 after 54 holes in the six-day, 108-hole event that will determine player priority rankings for the Web.com Tour season.

"I was just pretty steady all day today and gave myself a lot of opportunities," Saunders said. "I made a 30-footer for birdie on 17 and then hit it in the fairway bunker on 18 and hit it to about 25 and made that one to finish with a flurry, which was cool."

Scotland's Jimmy Gunn and Scott Pinckney of Scottsdale, Ariz., were tied for second. Gunn had a 64, and Pinckney shot 67 -- both on the TPC Stadium Course.

Cam Burke of Kitchener, Ont., is seven shots back at 206. Albin Choi of Toronto is another shot back.

Devin Carrey of Surrey, B.C., Derek Gillespie of Oshawa, Ont., and Roger Sloan of Calgary are 11 shots back at 210.
