One ahead, with one day left

David Howell is still ahead in Shanghai, yet his lead has been reduced to only one shot.

Tiger Woods is close behind, currently at -15, sharing the second place spot with Nick O'Hern. After firing a third round 67, which contained a three putt on the ninth the world no.1 said,"Considering this is the biggest event China have had had it would be very special to have my name associated with it."

"Hopefully I can get the job done, but there's a long way to go and it's not exactly easy to make the short ones. "

Howell, who is currently leading at 16 under, finished up with 68, taking a one shot lead going into the final 18 holes.

"I think 68 was the worst score I could possibly have scored and it's slightly frustrating to have only a one-shot lead," he said.

"It's all about winning on Sunday. It's a great opportunity for me, taking on the world's best player with a one-shot lead."

"It's going to be an exciting day and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

Elsewhere, Paul Casey carded a round 73, not his best performance, putting him 8 behind. Monty ended up with a much better 68, in a round which inlcuded five birdies, however his poor start means that he is down in 25th place.
