Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain shot a 2-under 68 to share the third-round lead with New Zealand's Michael Campbell at the Hong Kong Open on Saturday. Campbell, looking for his first win in seven years, made a 15-foot par putt on the last hole to complete a round of 69 that put him at 10-under 200. Jimenez is trying to win the event for a third time in nine years. Campbell survived a scare during his round when he accidently knocked his ball off the tee at the par-4 10th hole while taking a practice swing. However, the 2005 U.S. Open champion avoided a two-stroke penalty after a ruling that he had not addressed the ball and therefore was not in breach of the rules. Matteo Manassero's 64 moved him into a share of third place at 9 under with China's Lian-wei Zhang (69).
