Thorbjorn Olesen was again on target at the Turkish Airlines Open in Antalya.

After setting a course record 62 the day before the Dane added a three under par 68 third round to extend his lead to seven shots.

Olesen is on an 18 under total – seven clear of a chasing pack of five players tied for second.

American David Lipsky is one, after moving up eight places following a five under 66.

Joining Lipsky is Austrian Bernd Wiesberger who also returned a score of 66 with six birdies and a bogey.

Italian Matteo Manassero is also in a tie for second having shot a second consecutive 68 to add to his first round 66.

After two rounds of 67 England’s David Horsey posted a 68 to keep himself in with a slim chance of a fifth European Tour win and first in over a year.

While completing the chasing quintet is China’s Li Haotong, who also registered a third round 68.
