Abu Dhabi - Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler were part of a five-way tie for the lead at the Abu Dhabi Championship after Andy Sullivan made a triple-bogey in fading light to relinquish a two-shot advantage late in a fog-affected third round on Saturday.

Sullivan drove into a bush, couldn't find his ball, returned to the tee, and eventually made a 7 at No 9 in a dramatic finish to the day's play, which ended with most of the field yet to finish their third rounds.

Sullivan dropped to 9 under and was a shot behind McIlroy, Fowler, Branden Grace, Ian Poulter, and Joost Luiten, who all have holes to play early on Sunday before starting the final round.

Top-ranked Jordan Spieth finished his round in the gloom, and three shots behind.
