BANGKOK -- Lucas Lee of Brazil shot a 7-under 65 Saturday to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the Thailand Open.

Lee had eight birdies against a lone bogey on the 11th hole for a 19-under total of 197 at the Thana City Golf & Sports Club. Mu Hu of China shot a 64 to sit tied for second with defending champion Chris Wood of England (65) at the season-opening event on the OneAsia tour.

Scott Strange of Australia led after the second round, which was completed earlier Saturday after a rain suspension, but fell to a tie for third after a 68. He was a further stroke back along with Simon Yates of Scotland, who had a flawless 64 that included six birdies and an eagle on the fifth hole.
