DOHA, Qatar (AP) Chris Wood shot an 8-under-par 64 to surge into the lead at the Qatar Masters after the third round, taking a three-shot advantage over Michael Campbell and two others Friday.

Wood started the day two shots behind Ryder Cup stars Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer. He quickly moved up the leaderboard with five birdies on the front nine en route to a 15-under 201.

He made the turn with an eagle at the 10th when his second shot landed within 10 feet of the pin. He missed a short putt on 12 for bogey but had birdies on the 14th and 16th to match fellow Englishman Simon Khan for the low round of the tournament.
