It's a two-horse race, and Abraham Ancer has a slight edge coming around the final corner.

Ancer and Cameron Young have pulled away from the field at the PIF Saudi International at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in Saudi Arabia, with Ancer sitting at 17 under and Young at 15 under, five shots clear of a trio tied for third place. Ancer, who has led after every round, shot 6-under 64 in the third round while Young shot his third consecutive 5-under 65.

Matthew Wolff, Sadom Kaewkanjana and Lucas Herbert are tied for third at 10 under in the Asian Tour event.

Last week, it was Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed battling it out in Dubai. Now, it's Ancer and Young, the PGA Tour's 2022 Rookie of the Year, at the venue where LIV Golf's championship event will be come November.

"Yeah, another very solid round. Happy with no dropped shots," Ancer said. "That's always my goal. On a golf course like this where it's blowing pretty good, I'm really, really happy.

"Not really focused on what everybody else is doing. Just trying to play the same game I've been playing the past three days."

Wolff had the round of the day, shooting 7-under 63 to vault up the leaderboard. However, Young is Ancer's closest pursuer, and he's looking forward to Sunday.

"Yeah, I think I've played really solidly," Young said. "Obviously Abe's playing some really nice golf. So I think tomorrow will be fun."
