Bernd Wiesberger of Austria carded a flawless 6-under 65 to rise to the top of the leaderboard with a three-round total of 200 at the Portugal Masters on Saturday.
Wiesberger made six birdies in a bogey-free round to take a one-shot lead over England's Ross Fisher, who hit a 2-under 69 after leading through the first two rounds.
The 27-year-old Wiesberger will try to close out his third European Tour win of the season Sunday on the Oceanico Victoria Golf Course.
Wiesberger says, ''I played beautifully on the back nine.''
Four shots behind Wiesberger in joint third are Ireland's Shane Lowry (67), England's Richard Finch (66) and New Zealand's Michael Campbell (67).
