Ireland's Paul Dunne posted a third round 70 to put himself on nine-under total after three rounds at the Qatar Masters in Doha.

Dunne carded three birdies and an eagle but also signed for three bogeys as he tried to stay in touch with tournament leader Jeunghun Wang. 

The South Korean posted the round of the day with a seven-under 65 to give him the outright lead on 15-under, three shots ahead of Nacho Elvira and Jaco Van Zyl. 

Other notable scores include Rafa Cabrera-Bello on ten-under, Martin Kaymer on six-under and Graeme McDowell on five-under.

Speaking afterwards, Wang said: "My iron play was really good today and my putting was really good. I shot seven under and I'm so happy that I didn't make any bogeys today.

"I think the wind is similar but the course design is quite different. I love to play this course so I'm excited to play it tomorrow.

"I don't want to think about winning, I just want to focus on my own game. I have a good chance to win," he added.
