HONG KONG, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Robert Karlsson shot 4-under-par 66 Saturday, maintaining a four-stroke advantage in the European Tour's 2008 Hong Kong Open.

With his total of 16-under-par 194 through three rounds, the Swede bettered the tournament's 54-hole total by one stroke.

"I am very happy with the way I played today and that is the most important thing," he said. "You'd take a four shot lead on any course but this is definitely a tricky course to try and pick up a lot of shots on (and) my focus is on another good solid round (Sunday)."

Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez stayed in second place after a matching 4-under 66. His total is 12-under 198.

Australia's Marcus Fraser (64), Shiv Kapur (65) of India, South Korea's K.J. Choi (65) and Sweden's Peter Hanson (65) all share third place at 11-under 199.

Three others, including former Masters champion Mike Weir (67), are tied for seventh at 10-under 200.
