ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark took a three-shot lead at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Saturday after a 7-under 65 at St. Andrews in the third round.

Olesen started with a bogey on the first hole but then had eight birdies the rest of the way - including four on the last five holes - for a 17-under 199 total.

"I started off badly by hitting it in the water on the first but I got over it and played some good golf," Olesen said. "My putter started to get very hot out there and I holed a lot of great putts. So yeah, it was good fun."
