Dustin Johnson says he is ready to do battle with Li Haotong on the final day of the Saudi International.
The American carded a 61 on Friday and backed it up with a 65, helping himself to six birdies, with just a single bogey on his card.
However, Haotong was the star of Saturday, recording four eagles, a brace of birdies and a bogey to sign for a 62.
The pair sit on 16-under for 54 holes, five clear of Tom Lewis, with Alex Levy and Ryan Fox seven back on nine-under par.
It appears set to be a two-horse race on Sunday at Royal Greens G&C and the world number three says he is excited about going up against his in-form Chinese opponent.
“I thought I played well,” Johnson said. “I probably played just as well as I did yesterday. “I gave myself a lot of opportunities and made a lot of good putts.
Just holed a few more yesterday than I did today is the only difference. “For me, I just go out and play like I’ve been playing, and hopefully can roll in a few more putts and see what I can do.
“Haotong is a good player. He’s obviously playing well right now. I think it’s going to be kind of a tough match against him tomorrow for the most part, but I’m looking forward to it.”
