Benjamin Alvarado carded a 5-under 66 on Saturday to grab a 3-stroke lead at the inaugural Brasil Classic.
Alvarado was forced to complete his second round earlier on Saturday as Friday's round was suspended due to darkness following a three-plus hour rain delay, and closed with three straight birdies to grab a share of the lead prior to the start of the third round.
The Chile native, who is seeking his first career win on the Web.com Tour, finished three rounds at the Sao Paulo Golf Club at 17-under-par 196.
Kevin Kim (67) sits in second place at 14-under, while Richard S. Johnson (70), Danny Lee (70) and Dawie van der Walt (65) share third at minus-13.
Johnson and Lee each held a share of the lead with Alvarado prior to the start of the third round.
