MADRID, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Paul Broadhurst shot a 3-under 68 Saturday for a share of the lead after the third round of the Open de Madrid.

Broadhurst finished 54 holes at 13-under-par 200 for a tie with Darren Fichardt, who shot a 67.

Ivo Giner had a 7-under 64 to join Graeme McDowell, Brett Rumford and Richard Sterne at 12-under-par 201.

Johan Edfors was tied for the lead on the 18th tee, but a lost ball led to a double-bogey and a round of 69. Edfors finished at 11-under 202 with Miguel Angel Jimenez, Anders Hansen, Raphael Jacquelin and Terry Price.

Broadhurst, an Englishman, has not won on the European Tour since the 1995 Open de France.
