199 – shots taken by co-leaders Thomas Pieters and Ross Fisher after three days in Abu Dhabi.

50 holes without a bogey for Rory McIlroy, before his bogey at the 15th hole ended what is the Northern Irishman's longest bogey-free run on the European Tour.

11 - under par for Pieters on the par 4s has the Belgian leading in that category.

19 - number of birdies across the three rounds for Fisher has the Englishman second in that category.

69.5 – the scoring average on Moving Day was the second lowest in the history of this event (the lowest was 69.3 back in 2009).

63 – Matt Fitzpatrick’s nine under par 63 was the lowest round of the week, and one shot off equalling Henrik Stenson’s course record 62 (Fitzpatrick is the eighth player to shoot 64 or less in the history of the tournament).

72 – holes Fisher and Pieters will have played together by the time this event finishes, with the duo paired together for the fourth straight round on Sunday.

32 – under par for his last six rounds at Abu Dhabi GC, Tommy Fleetwood is just two shots back as he attempts to defend his title.

20 – mph winds are expected to blow for the fourth round, making scoring conditions much tougher.

67.5 - average final round for McIlroy at this event (Rory's worst fourth round here is 69).

7 - under par, the best front nine at Abu Dhabi Golf Club in the history of the tournament from Matt Fitzpatrick.

76 - number of birdies during round 3 from the top 11 players.
