England's Tommy FleetwoodEngland's Tommy FleetwoodEngland's Tommy Fleetwood is two shots off the lead going into the final round of the Hong Kong Open.


The Race to Dubai winner carded a four-under-par 66 to move to eight under after Saturday's third round.

India's SSP Chawrasia shot a 69 and will take a one-stroke lead into Sunday as he looks for his first European Tour win outside his home country.

Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello and Australian Wade Ormsby are tied second after a 64 and 65 respectively.

Englishman Chris Hanson moved to six under by shooting 67, with Justin Rose on five under after a 68.

Fleetwood birdied the 13th but got in trouble in the sand on the 15th before setting up a closing birdie from the trees on the last.

He finished tied third in Hong Kong last year, with Cabrera Bello second.

Chawrasia, 39, said: "It's a little bit of added pressure but I can manage that a little bit.

"That's why sometimes I think I'm missing a couple of putts but I will think tomorrow, 'I can do something'."
