Australia's Wade Ormsby has continued his impressive run at the Hong Kong Open carding a second successive four-under-par 66 to maintain a two-shot lead after Saturday's third round.

South Australian Ormsby, who has led throughout, remained on top with an eagle, three birdies and a bogey for 13-under 197 overall.

"I probably struck it the best I have all week early today," Ormsby said.

"I'm not going to play conservative, I'll play the golf course exactly the same way I played it for 10-15 years and let them come at me.

"And if they do, they do, I'm just going to keep doing my thing."

Thailand's Gunn Charoenkul (65) is behind 2017 champion Ormsby on 11-under 199.

Rashid Khan shot a seven-under 63 and shares third place - another two shots back - with Australia's Terry Pilkadaris (64), South Korea's Taewoo Kim (66) and Thailand's Jazz Janewattananond (67).

The tournament began on Thursday after a six-week delay because of anti-government protests.

It was originally scheduled for November in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory which has seen more than six months of anti-government demonstrations.
