Thorbjørn Olesen started the day three shots behind the lead but carded a flawless 64 on Moving Day to take a two-shot lead at 18-under in the Thailand Classic.

The Dane's recent form has been good having finished in the top 20 in his all three of his starts this year. A win on Sunday would be his seventh DP World Tour title.

"I think overall it was a pretty good round.

"I didn't get in a lot of trouble and at some of the par fours and par fives I hit it pretty close and could two-putt for birdie.

"I made it fairly easy today for myself, which is nice. It's not always like that."

Germany's Yannik Paul (66) and fellow Dane Nicolai Højgaard (64) are tied in second place at 16-under followed by the Netherlands' Joost Luiten (65) in fourth at 15-under.

England's Dale Whitnell carded a bogey-free 67 for a share of fifth place at 14-under alongside South Korea's Jeunghun Wang (67) and Japan's Kazuki Higa (68).
