Sweden's Alex Noren shot a three-under par 68 to move into a one-stroke lead in the Estoril Open on Saturday.

The blustery conditions made scoring difficult.Taichi Teshima of Japan coped better than most--a one-under par 70 putting him at three-under for the tournament, on his own in fifth.

Englishman Graeme Storm is a stroke ahead at four-under, in a tie for third place. He also shot 70 on Saturday.

Good round

One of the best rounds of the day came from Pablo Martin-Benavides.

The Spanish amateur shot a superb 66, including an eagle and six birdies, and is alongside Storm at four-under par in a share of third.

Ross McGowan began the day in the lead.He had an indifferent third round, eventually carding a one-over par 72.

But that was still good enough to keep the Englishman in second place at five-under par for the tournament.

Sweden's Alex Noren leads McGowan by a stroke heading into the final round. Noren's 68 included six birdies.

He shot a three-under par round for the second day in a row, and is six-under for the tournament.
