Clarke strong in Bahrain

Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke remains a stroke off the pace after the third round of the Volvo Golf Champions in Bahrain.

Clarke and South African James Kingston sit together - behind joint leaders Paul Casey and Peter Hanson - after they both shot 67, Clarke closing with a 14-foot birdie putt and then seeing playing partner Casey miss from only five.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, back using a putter after breaking his previous one in two pieces during his second round, slipped back to fifth spot with a 69.

Earlier former Open champion Todd Hamilton equalled the course record of 64 set by Swede Johan Edfors and then matched by Scot Stephen Gallacher.

Hamilton, though, had made the cut with only a shot to spare and so still has five to make up.
