Shubhankar Sharma upstaged the biggest names in golf by bravely maintaining his overnight two-shot lead following the third round of the Dollars 10 million World Golf Championships here, venturing into a territory hitherto unknown to Indian golfers.

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Shubhankar Sharma held his never to the end and held a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Mexico Championship.

Sharma had a chip-in eagle at the first hole (his 10th) and added four birdies on the Club de Golf Chapultepec course, which at its highest point is 7,835 feet (2,388 metres) above sea level, and plays much shorter than its 7,345 yards.

That left him 18 holes away from capping off his incredible rise. In his biggest test yet, the current No. 1 on the European Tours Race to Dubai and Asian Tours Habitat for Humanity standings will be grouped with five-time major victor Mickelson and Englands Hatton as he bids to become the youngest player to win a World Golf Championships tournament and only the second Asian after Hideki Matsuyama of Japan to do so.

That put him two clear of five-time Major victor Phil Mickelson (65), reigning Masters champion Sergio Garcia (69), Englishman Tyrrell Hatton (64) and Spaniard Rafa Cabrera Bello (69).

Not even looking at the hole and with his body sideways, Hadwin used the big slope to hit his ball way right of the hole before it come all the way back and dropped in.

Phil Mickelson played bogey-free for a 65 that will put him in the last group with Sharma and England's Tyrrell Hatton, who had a 64.

Sergio Garcia (69) and Rafa Cabrera Bello (69) are also just two behind, in a four-way tie for second, while Dustin Johnson (68) is part of a foursome at 10-under, three back.

He was at 13-under 200. Obviously Phil is a legend in the game of golf and I've seen him on TV for as many years as I can remember. It was his only non-par on the front nine, where he shot 33.

"Just fabulous", Sharma said of the shot.

Jordan Spieth birdied three of his last four holes and was six behind.

European - George Coetzee opened a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the Tshwane Open after a 3-under 68 in Pretoria, South Africa. The overnight leader fired five birdies and two bogeys in his home city - and on the course where he's a member - to move to 14-under overall. Just two months later he picked up his second win on the Euro Tour, claiming the Maybank Championship. All of his previous wins have come on African soil. For the week, Casey totaled 18 birdies against nine bogeys and is now 16th in SG: Tee-to-Green (5.017), highlighted by a 13th in SG: Around-the-Green (1.982).

Kang started the day leading by four strokes and finished trailing Korda by one after a 70.
