Kuala Lumpur: Title holder Ryan Moore of the United States shot a five-under-par 67 on Saturday to share the third round lead with countryman Kevin Na as he stood on the brink of becoming the first man to successfully defend the CIMB Classic.

Moore rolled in seven birdies at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club for a three-day total of 12-under-par 204 and was joined atop the leaderboard by former Asian Tour Rookie of the Year Na, who surged into contention with a bogey free 67.

World number four Sergio Garcia of Spain produced some wonderful par saves on his inward nine as he fired a 68 to share third spot with overnight leader Billy Hurley III, who carded a 71. They will enter the final round one stroke back in the US$7 million showpiece sanctioned by the Asian Tour and PGA TOUR.
