CHENGDU, China -- Nicolas Colsaerts eagled the first hole and went on to shoot a 6-under 66 Saturday to take a one-shot lead after the third round at the China Open.

The Belgian added five birdies to go with a single bogey for an 18-under total of 198 at Luxehills International Country Club in the southwestern city of Chengdu.

South Korea's Han Chang-won was one stroke back after chalking up seven birdies on his way to a bogey-free round of 65.

Peter Lawrie of Ireland and France's Gregory Havret both shot a 68 to sit another shot back in a tie for third, followed by overnight leader Jamie Donaldson of Wales, who shot a 70.
