South African golfer Oliver Bekker will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Catalunya Championship as he looks to turn his fine form into a first DP World Tour victory.
Bekker had a share of the lead after an opening 66 but entered the weekend one shot behind Englishman Laurie Canter at PGA Catalunya Golf and Wellness.
"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 and all, great," said Bekker.
"That one was big (on the 17th), that could be a real momentum moment with 18th coming up as well. With the storm coming in the wind is all over the place, so to make that putt was really important."
Bekker carded a 67 to get to 11-under and position himself two strokes ahead of Canter, who signed for a 70.
Bekker has five top-tens in nine starts in his first season with full playing privileges after graduating from the European Challenge Tour.
His third-place finish at the Steyn City Championship was the best of his DP World Tour career and he will hope to get over the line in Sunday's final round in Girona.
"Tomorrow, I'm just going to do the same thing, it's been working for me. I'm not going to change anything," said Bekker.
"If it's my day, it's my day, if not, just try to give my best and see what happens."
Canter is also looking for his maiden win after three runner-up finishes, most recently at the 2021 BMW PGA Championship.
