After an eventful moving day Dane Lucas Bjerregaard shares the lead with Venezuelan Felipe Aguilar. But there is a strong chasing pack at Topwin Golf and Country Club.
Lucas Bjerregaard shot a flawless seven under 65, with an eagle and five birdies, to reel in the overnight clubhouse leader Felipe Aguilar. Both are on 16 under, with Alex Noren, Tyrrell Hatton, Nicolas Colsaerts and local favourite Haotong Lee two shots behind.
Bjerregaard kick started his charge when he holed his approach to the 483-yard third hole for a spectacular eagle. He then birdied the eighth for the third day running before he picked up further shots at 11 and 12.
Colsaerts matched Bjerregaard's perfect 65 with a bogey free seven under which consisted of seven birdies, five of which were on the back nine to bring him home in just 31 shots.
Behind the third placed group is Gregory Havret at 13 under, and Richard Bland is one shot further back with Peter Hansom, Fabrizio Zanotti and Marcel Siem.
This one's far from over that's for sure.
