(AP) Marcel Siem of Germany shot a 3-under 69 Saturday to extend his lead to four shots after the third round of the Hassan II Trophy.
The French Open champion made five birdies but was pegged back by a bogey on the first hole and again on No. 17 to move to a 15-under total of 201 in the European Tour event.
The 72nd-ranked Siem needs to enter the top 50 by Sunday to earn his first invitation to the Masters. Mikko Ilonen of Finland, Englishman David Horsey, and Pablo Larrazabal of Spain were all tied for second with 205.
Larrazabal matched Siem's score of 69, while Horsey and Ilonen who were tied for second after two rounds both shot 70.
