New Zealand golfer Ben Campbell is in sole possession of second heading into the final round in Morocco.

Campbell is one stroke off the lead after the third round of the Asian Tour's International Series Morocco tournament on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time), following another five-under 68.


It was the 32-year-old's third straight bogey-free round at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam's Red Course, leaving him at 13-under for the week, one behind American John Catlin. He has gone 105 consecutive holes without a bogey on the Asian Tour.

Campbell made birdies at the first, third, fifth, ninth and 17th holes on Saturday, on a day he hit 11-of-15 fairways and 13-of-18 greens in regulation. He had 10 one-putt greens and just one three-putt.

He will be joined in the final round on Sunday by Eugenio Chacarra, who is another shot behind, and Catlin, teeing off at 10.30am local time (9.30pm NZT).

Meanwhile, fellow Kiwi Kazuma Kobori moved up two places into a tie for 19th at five-under after a two-under 71 in the third round, which featured five birdies and three bogeys.

At the DP World Tour's BMW International Open in Munich, Germany, Ryan Fox moved up into a share of 28th following a two-under 70 in the third round on Saturday (Sunday NZT).

Fox carded an eagle, four birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, rising to six-under for the week, eight strokes behind the co-leaders, England's Jordan Smith and Scotland's Ewen Ferguson.

The 36-year-old had a busy front-nine, with birdies at the second, fifth, sixth and ninth holes, and back-to-back bogeys at the third and fourth. His back-nine opened with a double at the par-four 10th, followed by an eagle at the par-five 11th, rolling in a 20-footer.

Fox will tee off his final round on Sunday at 11.05am local time (9.05pm NZT).
