Tommy Fleetwood in the Hong Kong hunt

As he shoots a 66 on moving day

Tommy Fleetwood in the Hong Kong hunt Race to Dubai winner Tommy Fleetwood is just two shots off the lead as he goes into the final round of the Hong Kong Open.

He posted a four-under-par 66 to move to eight under on Saturday's moving day.

India's SSP Chawrasia holds a one shot lead, after shooting a 69 and is looking for his first European Tour win outside his own home country.

Meanwhile, Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello and Australian Wade Ormsby are tied second after shooting 64 and 65.

Justin Rose shot a 68 to finish the day T13, five shots off the lead.

Fleetwood birdied the 13th but got in trouble in the sand on the 15th before setting up a closing birdie from the trees on the last.

Tommy finished tied third in Hong Kong last year, with Rafa Cabrera Bello in second, so given his current form and eye for the course, he is still very much in with a shout.

But it is not happening for the Masters winning Sergio Garcia.Even after his best round of the tournament, a four-under-par 66 on Saturday, the Masters champion was unhappy with the state of his play.

Going into moving day, Sergio was even par for the tournament but now finds himself at four under, six strokes behind the leader.

“I don’t know, the way I’m feeling at the moment, probably not,” said Garcia when asked if he had a chance in the final round.

“But if I can figure something out, it would have been nice to at least shoot six or seven under today, which I could have done, and then I wouldn’t be so far away from the lead."

It looks like our money is on Tommy Fleetwood to finish the deal on Sunday.
