American Russell Henley in complete control at the Mayakoba Championship in Mexico

Russell Henley has a six-stroke lead going into the final round of the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba in Mexico.

The American continued his superlative form around El Camaleon Golf Club, carding for a third-round six under 65, enough to move him to 22 under for the tournament, six shots ahead of Will Gordon and Patton Kizzire.

Henley gained momentum early, rolling in a birdie on the par-four first, then three more came before the turn. He took advantage of the par 5 13th, before rolling in a long-distance birdie on the par three 15th for his 22nd birdie of the week. Incredibly, the Georgia native is yet to card a bogey.

"Out here you've got to keep attacking," said the 33-year-old, as per pgatour.com.

"Everybody's so good and everybody can go low, so it's a tough game out here. I don't think I've ever had a lead like this. It's definitely tough to finish golf tournaments, so I'm just really trying not to think about the score and just think about each shot."

Ireland's Seamus Power, who won last week in Bermuda, put himself in contention with a sizzling third-round 63 which moved him to solo fourth on the leaderboard.
