CELADNA, Czech Republic (AP) - Steven O'Hara shot a flawless 7-under 65 to share the lead after the third round of the Czech Open on Saturday.
Chasing his first career European Tour victory, the Scot made seven birdies to join Oliver Fisher of England (68) on 10-under 206 at Prosper Golf Resort.
"I've been guilty of changing my putter every other week in the past, but I've found one I like and I'm in a good groove on the greens now, so I think I'm just going to stick with it," O'Hara said.
Fisher, also winless so far, holed an eagle on the 11th.
"I had a lot of fun out there, it's where you want to be, not struggling to make the cut," he said.
"I'm looking forward to it tomorrow. I've always held my own whenever I've been in contention in the past. Obviously I haven't won before, but I've given myself a good chance tomorrow, and that's all I can ask for."
Gaganjeet Bhullar of India hit a 64 for a share of third place with Gary Boyd of England and second-round leader Mikael Lundberg of Sweden on 208.
Bhullar, who has yet to enjoy a top-10 finish, said the sunny conditions after the thunderstorms that hit the northeastern Czech town on Friday, contributed to his performance.
"It feels like heaven on earth. I'm loving it," he said.
Early Saturday, Lundberg completed a 68 to take a one-stroke lead after the rain-delayed second round.
