The 27-year-old Wiesberger will try to close out his third European Tour win of the season Sunday at the Oceanico Victoria Golf Course. He's at 13-under 200 for the tournament.
"I played beautifully on the back nine," he said. "After seven holes I was not thinking about a 65. I had some horrible wedges early on but I grinded through that and hit better shots around the turn."
Fisher played through pain from a strained ligament in his left foot that he injured early Friday.
"It was heavily bandaged and I tried to take the weight off it as much as I could," Fisher said. "It's quite bruised, but the swelling is not as bad as I was told it might be.
"I'm disappointed to drop a shot on the last. I tried to keep my neck out in front, but there's still a lot of golf to play."
