ATZENBRUGG, Austria — Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark shot a 4-under 68 Friday for a three-stroke lead over Sweden's Rikard Karlberg after the third round of the Austrian Open.

Olesen, who won his first title at the Sicilian Open in April, made four birdies and was 16 under overall. Karlberg improved to 13 under with a 66.

Four players were another stroke back to share third — Benjamin Hebert (64) of France, Richard Bland (68) of England, Thomas Levet (69) of France and Bernd Wiesberger (67) of Austria.

Hebert's 64 equaled the course record, the third player to do so after Olesen and Pablo Larrazabal of Spain.
