Rose leads the way in Abu Dhabi
Justin Rose remains on course for a dream debut in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship after doubling his advantage to two shots in the third round.
With no Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods to worry about - the world's top two missed the halfway cut - the leading remaining player had every reason to feel confident when he resumed on eight under par.
A three-putt opening bogey from only 15 feet was not quite what the 32-year-old had in mind, but then came five birdies in six holes as his class shone through again.
A tee shot to four feet on the short 12th brought fifth-ranked Rose another and a four-stroke advantage over the field, but that gap came down to one when he bogeyed the 13th and 17th.
He was just short of the green in two on the long 18th, however, and a chip to two feet gave him a seventh birdie of the day, a 68 and a 12 under aggregate.
Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Dane Thorbjorn Olesen are in joint second place after both handed in 69s.
Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee, third last week at the Volvo Golf Champions, is a further stroke back and then come Scot Richie Ramsay, England's David Howell and Spaniard Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano on eight under.
Rose said: "I came here with no expectations - I came here to see where my game is at."
Not surprisingly, he is delighted with where it is and the absence of McIlroy and Woods from the closing two rounds makes no difference to him.
"Anybody who wins this week, they have beaten the number one and number two in the world. You can say you've beaten the best."
