Offaly's Shane Lowry is strongly placed going into the final round of the British Masters at Close House Golf Course. 

The Clara man shot a bogey free four under par round on Saturday to move up to ten under par for the tournament. Lowry started his week with a two under par round on Thursday and followed that up with a four under par round on Friday.

He is now just two shots behind joint leader Robert Karlsson with a group of five players on eleven under including Ireland's Paul Dunne.

Joining Lowry on ten under are four other players including Rory McIlroy who shot a six under par round on Saturday.
