Scott Jamieson birdied the final hole of his third round to ensure he remains in sole possession of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship lead on -11 heading into the final round, but there is a whole host of players looking to hunt him down.
Blustery conditions made scoring difficult for the second day running at Yas Links but Jamieson, whose only European Tour victory came at the 2012 Nelson Mandela Championship, managed to mix five birdies with one bogey for four-under-par 68.
The 38-year-old Scot has a slender one-shot lead heading into the final 18 holes on Sunday and he can be backed at 4/1 to end his long wait for a second success on the circuit.
Irishman Shane Lowry, the 2019 Open champion, and Belgian Thomas Pieters share second on -10 and the duo will be hoping for a hot start in the final round to try and put the pressure on Jamieson.
Lowry handled the windy conditions superbly as he carded a blemish-free round of 67 and he is the 5/2 favourite to claim the spoils, while Pieters also didn’t drop a shot on Saturday and is 11/4 to triumph.
Indian Shubhankar Sharma (16/1) and Norwegian Viktor Hovland (4/1), who bogeyed the 18th, are in tied-fifth on -8 and they are still not out of the picture with just three shots the gap to the leader.
Further down the standings on -7, four off the pace, there is the English duo of Ian Poulter (18/1) and James Morrison (50/1) and Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who is 20/1 to land his fifth European Tour title.
