Beijing - England's Matt Wallace and Adrian Otaegui of Spain
share the lead going into the final round of the $3.2 million China Open on
Sunday but with the chasing pack stalking them.
The duo were at 12 under after Saturday's third round with
the triple threat of Sweden's Alexander Bjork, Julien Guerrier of France and
Spain's Jorge Campillo all a shot behind.
On 10 under were six players, ensuring Sunday's finale looks
set to go right to the wire.
The reigning champion Alex Levy of France was in a share of
12th, three shots off the leaders at Topwin Golf and Country Club in Beijing.
"I'm playing really nicely, I'm hitting it long and
straight and if I do that tomorrow I'll have a few chances at birdie,"
Wallace, the overnight leader who is chasing a third European Tour victory,
"We're tied for the lead so I'm pretty happy,"
added Wallace, following his three-under-par 69.
Otaegui, who surged into a share of the lead with a
bogey-free 67 that included five birdies on the trot, added: "I played
well from the beginning to the end.
"I made a couple of mistakes but was able to make pars.
That five birdies in a row helped me a lot.
"I think I have been very consistent all week, I am
striking the ball well and feeling well so I am happy with that."
