Atzenbrug - Overnight leader Joost Luiten carded a third round five under par 67 to pull three shots clear of the chasing pack at the Lyoness Open in Atzenbrug, Austria, on Saturday.

The Dutchman recovered from a poor start where he dropped two shots to birdie seven of the remaining 13 holes for a 16 under par total of 200.

Spanish duo Eduardo De La Riva and Jorge Campillo, who returned to the clubhouse with a 69 and a 66 respectively, share second, three shots behind.

Denmark's Thomas Bjorn (64), whose round included an eagle at the par four 12th, and France's Romain Wattel (69) are two strokes further adrift.

Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiminez, who needs to win this to secure his presence at next week's US Open, came in with a 69 to be placed six shots off the lead.
