Grant Forrest closed with a 62, the lowest round of the week so far, marred by a single bogey at the par-4 2nd to take a share of the lead at 10-under in the ISPS Handa Championship.

"I didn’t realise where I was until the last green and I thought β€˜oh this is for a 62’," said the Scot.

"Just plugged away all day. Got the putter going, I didn’t really hole any putts yesterday but managed to roll in a few.

"Got one in on the eighth, our 17th, from a long way. Other than that, just pretty solid.

"I’m looking forward to the weekend. The course is firming up a bit. There have been some tucked pins and I imagine it will stay the same going into the weekend."

Australia's Lucas Herbert and Thailand's Jazz Janewattananond both carded 63s for their share of the lead.

"It was amazing," said Janewattananond. "It was slow at the start and then it built up and had a really good finish.

"I'm feeling good, feeling comfortable on the golf course, not so tense. I used to play on the JGTO (Japan Golf Tour Organisation) so it’s good to be back here in Japan playing a similar golf course to what I used to play back in 2019, so it’s good to be back."

Germany's Maximilian Kieffer closed with a 65 for solo fourth place at 9-under followed by South Africa's Dean Germishuys (68), Japan's Takumi Kanaya (66) and England's Jordan Smith (66) at 8-under.

Overnight leader Andy Sullivan of England closed with a 70 and lies in a share of eighth place at 7-under.
