Thorbjorn Olesen will take a seven-shot lead into the fourth and final round of the 2016 Turkish Airlines Open after an impressive round of 68 saw the Danish player retain his spot atop the leaderboard on Saturday. 

After shooting a course-record 62 on Friday, Olesen faced a mountainous task in reaching the same standards in the third round, but a positive approach on Saturday nonetheless saw his lead grow.

He sits seven shots in front of England's David Horsey, who heads into the competition's climax as one of six players tied for second. American David Lipsky and Austria's Bernd Wiesberger did their best to close the gap on Saturday and are also joint-second after each recording rounds of 66 on Saturday.

Here's how the leaderboard's top 10 is shaping up after three rounds of competition at the Carya Golf Club in Belek, Turkey:

Recap After galloping his way in front of the competition in Belek on Friday, Olesen's charge on the Turkish Airlines Open title continued on Saturday by virtue of his own magnificent display and the fumbling of his opponents.

A bogey on the 10th might have seeded some doubt in his title credentials, but a three-hole streak of birdies between 14 and 16 re-established the void between him and his nearest competition.

As well as birdying six consecutive par threes across Friday and Saturday's play, Olesen ensured his putting stayed true most of all, and it was safe finishes such as that on the 17th that kept him in a place of security:
