Challenge Tour — Rosapenna's Ruaidhri McGee stormed home in 30 to move up to within five of former European Tour winner Rhys Davies the Turkish Airlines Challenge.
The Derry native posted seven birdies in an immaculate 65 to share ninth spot on seven under, just five behind the Welshman at Gloria Golf Resort.
Davies also shot 65 to move to 12 under par as halfway leader Edouard Dubois struggled to a one over 73.
McGee finished second in the Challenge de Madrid two weeks ago to move up to sixth in the Challenge Tour Rankings and secure his playing privileges for the rest of the season after injury marred his rookie campaign.

European Tour — A one over 72 saw Kevin Phelan fall 17 places to tied 53rd as South African George Coetzee shot a bogey free 65 to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the inaugural AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open at the Heritage Golf Club.
Phelan is on level par while Coetzee leads on 11 under from compatriot Thomas Aiken (68) and overnight leader Thorbjørn Olesen (70).
Dane Olesen, the overnight leader by one shot, struggled with his driver throughout the third round, but he produced three birdies on the back nine, as well as a string of impressive par saves, to remain in contention in his first tournament back after three months out with a hand injury.
Singapore’s Mardan Mamat is a further two shots back on eight under par following a round of 67, while Scotland’s Andrew McArthur was left to rue a closing double bogey as he signed for a round of 68 to lie four strokes off the pace, in a four-way share of fifth position on seven under par.
