The Hague - Chris Wood birdied the 18th hole to card his second 65 of the KLM Open on Saturday and take a one-shot lead into the closing round.

The English golfer got off to a sluggish start with a bogey on the par-4 second at The Dutch in Spijk, and reached the turn 1-under for the day before reeling off five birdies on the back nine to reach 13-under for the tournament.

Hideto Tanihara of Japan matched the lowest round of the European Tour event with an 8-under 63 to join overnight leader Ashun Wu and Jonathan Thomson in a three-way tie for second at 12 under.

After opening rounds of 64 and 66, Wu could manage only a level-par 71 as he slipped off the top of the leaderboard.
