DeChambeau takes 1-shot lead into final round in Dubai

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — American golfer Bryson DeChambeau will take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic after shooting a 4-under 68 on Saturday.

Li Haotong, who is looking to claim back-to-back victories at the Emirates Golf Club, is the nearest challenger to DeChambeau after moving into second place outright with a third straight 67 of the week.

Three-time winner Ernie Els (70) and Matt Wallace (69) are two shots further back after three rounds.

DeChambeau, who is the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 5, is seeking his first victory overseas.
