Jose Manuel Lara has a two-shot lead to take into the final round of the UBS
Hong Kong Open tomorrow after taking control in the third round.
The Spaniard retained his place at the top of the leaderboard as he carded a faultless
four-under-par 66 which included four birdies.
Lara is now on 14-under 196 but just behind him is Juvic Pagunsan, who only
failed to finish higher than second due to a double bogey on the ninth.
Otherwise he carded an impressive round with seven birdies, including four in
succession, on the way to a four-under-par 66 finish and is on 12-under 198 in
Frenchman Gregory Bourdy, who briefly joined playing partner Lara on top of
the leaderboard early in the day, carded a one-under-par 69 and is in third
place with a 10-under 200.
Defending champion Colin Montgomerie, who had been looking for a big
improvement this weekend, shot his worst round of the tournament so far, carding
a par 70.
