(AP) Scott Jamieson equaled a European Tour record by shooting a 60, finishing two strokes behind leader Paul Waring after three rounds of the Portugal Masters on Saturday.

Jamieson made 11 birdies for a 11-under total of 199. The Scot made par on the final hole after missing a putt that would have given him the unprecedented 59. Instead, he is the 18th golfer in European Tour history to shoot 60.

Waring came in with a share of the overnight lead and birdied the 16th and 17th holes to take sole possession of it. Simon Thornton, Jamie Donaldson, and Hennie Otto are tied with Jamieson at two shots off Waring's lead.

Chris Doak and Spaniards Pablo Larrazabal and Alvaro Quiros are another shot behind heading into Sunday's final round.
