MUNICH (AP) English golfer James Morrison shot a 5-under 67 to claim a two-stroke lead in the third round of the BMW International Open as overnight leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello dropped six off the pace on Saturday.

Morrison, who began the day one stroke behind Cabrera-Bello, made six birdies and would be further ahead but for a bogey on the final hole. He was at 16-under 200 heading into Sunday's final round.

Cabrera-Bello had five bogeys and finished with his third birdie for a round of 74 and share of eighth place.

Chris Paisley of England scored 66 to move into second on 14 under, one stroke ahead of Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (68) and Sweden's Peter Hanson (67).

Spain's Carlos del Moral, compatriot Pablo Larrazabal, and Northern Ireland's Michael Hoey were tied for fifth, five strokes off the pace.
