Scotland's Ewen Ferguson will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the Magical Kenya Open as he seeks a maiden victory on the DP World Tour.

Ferguson carded an eagle and four birdies in a third round of 66 at Muthaiga Golf Club to reach 14 under par, with Sweden's Marcus Kinhult and China's Ashun Wu on 10 under.

"It would be unbelievable to win obviously, but I think with everything going on in the world right now golf just means so little and I think that's in the back of everyone's minds," Ferguson said.

"I think that's pretty key as well, there's so much other stuff going on so I'll try my best tomorrow and try to grind out the win but if it doesn't happen I'll be back again for another chance."

Ferguson began the day a shot off the lead but made the ideal start with a birdie on the first and eagled the par-five fourth before dropping his only shot of the day on the sixth.

Three birdies on the back nine gave the 25-year-old Glaswegian a welcome cushion heading into the final day, just three weeks after he finished 130th in a 132-man field in the Ras Al Khaimah Classic following rounds of 76 and 78.

"I just kind of wrote that Ras Al Khaimah tournament off because I was just sitting in my room for eight days (with Covid) and didn't touch a club," Ferguson added.

"I went back home, practised with my coach and family and just didn't let it get under my skin."

Halfway leader Shubhankar Sharma struggled to a third round of 75 to fall eight shots off the lead.

Ireland's Niall Kearney shot a third-round 69 to sit just inside the top 40 on three-under-par.

Paul Dunne is at level par, tied 60th, while Jonathan Caldwell is a shot further back.

Mark Sharvin struggled to a 78, leaving him on seven-over-par overall.
