Oliver Bekker is back in the lead of the Catalunya Championship at 11-under after carding a 67 on Saturday.

The South African has had five top-10s in nine starts on the DP World Tour in his first season with full playing privileges having graduated from the European Challenge Tour.

“My short game really got me out of a bit of trouble today on a few occasions and I managed to capitalise on the shots that I did well so, all in all, great.

“Tomorrow I’m just going to do the same thing, it’s been working for me, I’m not going to change anything. If it’s my day, it’s my day, if not, just try to give my best and see what happens.”

Overnight leader Laurie Canter of England moved down into second place at 9-under after carding a 70.

“The great thing about this course, I genuinely think the best player is going to win over 72 holes,” said Canter. “It’s that sort of a test. That might be an obvious thing to say but it’s really prevalent here. If you manage your game well, chip, putt, it tests all the facets.

“In a way that’s good for me to feel like that, got to go out and try to be the best payer tomorrow. If I can play like I did today and get a bit more out of the round, I’ll have a chance.”
