O'Hara in Czech tie

Scotland's Steven O'Hara shot a fantastic third-round 65 at the Czech Open to sit level with Oliver Fisher at the top of the leaderboard ahead of the final round today.

O'Hara had a quiet start to the week before storming up the leaderboard with seven birdies in a blemish-free third round while Englishman Fisher joined him in the clubhouse lead later on.

An eagle at the par-four 11th was the pick of the round for Fisher, who signed for a 68, although he dropped a shot after bogeying the 12th and the 22-year-old said he was having fun in Celadna.

"I'm really enjoying my golf at the moment, and I've got a great caddie on the bag,"he said. "I had a lot of fun out there -- it's where you want to be, not struggling to make the cut.

"It's been a while since I've led a tournament, but I'm holding it together pretty well at the moment."

Overnight leaders Mikael Lundberg and Jose Manuel Lara remain in contention despite disappointing third rounds, with Lundberg tied third with Gary Boyd and Gaganjeet Bhullar on eight-under. Lara is two shots further back, tied for sixth with Damien McGrane and David Drysdale.
