Jimenez joins Hong Kong lead

Michael Campbell and Miguel Angel Jimenez are tied for the lead going into the final round of the Hong Kong Open.

Campbell, one ahead overnight and searching for his first win since 2005, signed for a one-under 69 to retain his place at the top of the leaderboard.

The New Zealander was joined by veteran Spaniard Jimenez, who won this event in 2007.

Jimenez parred all nine holes on the outward half and then picked up shots at the 10th and 14th on the way to a two-under 68.

The leading duo are one ahead of Italian Matteo Manassero and China's Lian-wei Zhang.

Manassero produced the equal low round of the day, a six-under 64, to power into contention, while Zhang kept home hopes alive with a 69.

Swede Fredrik Andersson Hed is alone at eight under after a level par 70, one shot ahead of Ireland's Peter Lawrie (67) and Dane Anders Hansen (70).
