The stage is set for the final round at Sheshan and the major
players, at least the final trio, will match Saturday's cast.
Fredrik Jacobson posted a 5-under 67 Saturday and will take a
two-shot lead into the final round of the World Golf
Championships-HSBC Champions. Jacobson pushed his lead to four
shots after birdies on the 13th and 14th holes but parred in,
allowing the other members of his group to gain ground. Joining him
in the final group again will be Louis Oosthuizen, who is two back
at 14 under, and Adam Scott at 13 under. Both players started the
day one shot behind Jacobson and took vastly different paths to
secure positions in Sunday's final group. Oosthuizen started slow,
not getting a birdie until the fourth hole, but was bogey-free in
his 4-under 68. Scott, who is looking to become the first player
not named Tiger Woods to win back-to-back World Golf Championships,
started with two birdies, was 3 over from holes 4-15, then closed
birdie-birdie-eagle for a 3-under 69. U.S. Open Champion Rory
McIlroy made the most of moving day. His 7-under 65 moved him to 12
under, tied with Lee Westwood, four shots behind Jacobson. Graeme
McDowell and Martin Kaymer will enter the final round five back.
FedEx St. Jude Classic champions Harrison Frazar and Xin-jun Zhang
had Saturday's best rounds, each posting 8-under 64s. Zhang is
joined by Paul Casey and last week's CIMB Asia Pacific Classic
champion Bo Van Pelt at 10 under through three rounds. TOUR Rookie
Jhonattan Vegas matched McIlroy's 7-under 65 and heads to Sunday at
9 under, tied with Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan and Keegan Bradley.
Defending champion Francesco Molinari has yet to break 70 this week
and heads to Sunday's finale at 5 under, tied for 30th.
