Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts shot a superb four-under-par 67 in the French Open third round on Saturday to take a three-shot lead into the final day at Le Golf National.

Colsaerts carded five birdies and a bogey as he turned a share of the overnight into a three-shot advantage, and he is keeping his focus purely on his game at Le Golf National.

The win is Colsaerts' first since the 2012 Volvo World Match Play Championship and secures his full playing privileges on the European Tour until the end of the 2021 season, having started the week battling to hold on to his card.

Nicolas Colsaerts opened up a three-shot lead heading into the final round of the Amundi Open de France as fellow Ryder Cup hero Jamie Donaldson roared into contention in Paris.

The former Ryder Cup star got down in two from the fringe at the 16th and made a two-putt par at the next to stay ahead, before tapping in for par at the last to hold on for an emotional victory.

Down in ravishing 424th plight on this planet rankings, Colsaerts went into the week vexed about conserving his card on Tour, however the newly married father-of-one now has his residing guaranteed for two extra years.

"We know that the last four holes are always pretty dramatic and I proved it by hitting it in the water on 15".

"It was a surprise to come on 17 and find out what JB had done". I thought it was slowly slipping away.

At the ninth Coetzee halved the gap at the top of the leadboard with an impressive, lengthy birdie putt, and moved out in front on his own after following it with back-to-back gains on the 10th and 11th holes to get to 13-under-par.

Le Golf National took its own place in Ryder Cup history past year as it hosted another European victory and that drama was nearly matched over the famous closing stretch on Sunday. Both he and Colsaerts were in the water on 15. "Really got to feel how it is to play for a European Tour tournament inside me", said the 29-year-old Hansen.

Colsaerts shot a 72 on a nervous outing in wet conditions that saw him double bogey the 15th, but he just got over the line.

"It would be awesome to win this thing but if I stay away from thinking that I think my chances will a lot higher than if I see this thing in front of me", he told europeantour.com.

"Back nine (I) got excited".
