ANTRIM, Northern Ireland, June 30 (UPI) -- Jamie Donaldson shot 3-under despite rainy conditions Saturday to take a one-shot lead after three rounds at the Irish Open.

Donaldson splashed home in 69 for a three-round score of 12-under 204 and a narrow lead over Anthony Wall, who had an impressive round of 67 at Royal Portrush.

Ireland's Padraig Harrington was tied for third with Mark Foster.

Donaldson, who carded a 67 Friday, bogeyed Saturday's first hole but atoned with an eagle on No. 2 and finished the rollercoaster round with three birdies and another bogey before making the turn and finishing at even par on the back nine.

Second-round leader Gregory Bourdy stumbled back to 4-under for the tournament after slogging to an 8-over 80 on Saturday.
