"I fought to the end, created many chances", said Kaymer, the 2008 champion.
Bland, who began the day a single shot behind halfway leaders Joel Stalter and Lagergen, showed tremendous ability to bounce back from a bogey at the second with three straight gains from the fourth to reach the turn in 34.
Stenson sunk four birdies and dropped just one shot as he seeks to retain the title he won from Darren Fichardt and Thorbjorn Olesen here a year ago.
Compatriot Richard Green is next best of the Australian contingent with the Melburnian's one-under-par 71 leaving him in a tie for 23rd at four-under.
The leading pair have a one-shot advantage over Joakim Lagergren, but Henrik Stenson is five strokes off the pace after the Open champion returned a frustrating level-par 72 to slip to eight under along with Tommy Fleetwood.
Both men will be looking over their shoulder at two big names on moving day, with Masters victor Garcia and Open champion Stenson among a group of five players tied for second at eight under.
