Fredrik Jacobson posted a five-under 67 on HSBC Champions.
Jacobson matched David Howell's 2005 54-hole record with his 16-under 200 at Sheshan International Golf Club. The Swede is two strokes clear and continued his fine form that saw him finish third last week in Malaysia.
Adam Scott overcame a double-bogey at the eighth hole, thanks in large part to a hole-out eagle from the fairway at the 18th. He shot a three-under 69 and is third at 13-under 203, but it wasn't all great for Scott.
A report in The Telegraph stated that Scott's caddy, Steve Williams, who formerly caddied for Tiger Woods, made a racial remark about Woods at the caddy award dinner a few nights prior.
Williams was on Scott's bag Saturday.
