BEL OMBRE, Mauritius – Arjun Atwal and Louis de Jager are tied for the lead going into the final round of the Mauritius Open.

Atwal had a four-shot lead after the opening round but that was whittled down over the last two days and de Jager's third-round 67 meant he will go into Sunday alongside Atwal on 13 under overall.

South Africa's de Jager had four birdies at Heritage Golf Club on Saturday and watched India's Atwal make a three-putt bogey on the last hole to leave them level.

Atwal last won a tournament on the European Tour in 2008, while de Jager is looking for a first tour title.

They are one shot ahead of Dylan Frittelli (68) and Miguel Tabuena (67).

Louis Oosthuizen, the highest-ranked player at the tournament at No. 22, is one of a large bunch of players tied on 7 under.
