Spaniard Javier Colomo is one of six golfers tied for the lead after the third round of the Volvik Hildesheim Open in South Korea.
Australian Wade Ormsby – who hit a blemish-free 67, which included five birdies – sits in a tie for 13th, two shots off the lead.
But he is chasing the likes of Colomo – who fired a three-under 69 on Saturday – which gave him a share of the lead with South Korean trio Park Jun Won, Lee In Woo and Park Boo Won, Brazilian Adilson Da Silva and Thailand Thaworn Wiratchant.
Colomo had been consistent in his opening two rounds and he hit four birdies and a bogey in another impressive round.
The 28-year-old has added desire to win this weekend, with his wife caddying for him.
And Colomo has promised her a trip to the United States if he finishes on top on Sunday.
"My wife, Christina has been great all week," Colomo said.
"This is a physically demanding golf course and she has never complained. She has been a great source of comfort and inspiration and the only thing I need to do is to win it for us tomorrow.
"If I win, I'll book a flight to New York City. We had our honeymoon there and it'll add to the many happy memories that we already share."
Da Silva fired five birdies in a blemish-free 67 while Wiratchant – a 13-time winner on the Asian Tour – had a round of 68.
A group of six players, South Korean quartet Ma Soo Kil, Byun Jin Jae, Kim Dae Hyun and Mo Joong Kyung and Thai duo Thanyakon Khrongpha and Pariya Junhasavasdik are locked at seven under, just a shot off the lead.
Aussie Scott Hend sits at three under, tied for 24th, while compatriots Tim Stewart and Kevin Chun are at one-over-par, in a tie for 52th.
