VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Italian teenager Matteo Manassero and second-ranked Luke Donald share the lead in the BMW PGA Championship after three rounds.

Both shot 1-over 72 Saturday, leaving them at 5-under 208 after another tough day for low scoring on the much-criticized Wentworth course.

Manassero had two birdies and three bogeys in an erratic front nine before making nine straight pars. Donald dropped five strokes heading into the turn but regained four of them on a flawless back nine.

Top-ranked Lee Westwood and Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay shot 69s and are two strokes back.

Raphael Jacquelin of France (69), Bradley Dredge of Wales (69) and Simon Dyson of England (72) are three behind.
