Ross Fisher played the front nine of The Old Course at St Andrews in a five under par 31 to move into a share of the lead at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The Englishman posted five birdies before reaching the turn to draw level with Jarmo Sandelin at eight under par during the final round.
Sweden’s Sandelin, who held a share of the overnight lead along with Martin Kaymer, was two under for the day through five holes.
Fisher picked up a shot at the par four second, and another birdie came at the 480 yard fourth with another coming at the par five fifth.
Back to back birdies at the eight and ninth completed a flawless front nine.
Like Fisher, Sandelin birded the second and the fifth as two of his compatriots kept the pressure on a shot further back.
Magnus Carlsson and Robert Karlsson were both on seven under after six and eight holes respectively, with four players in a group on six under – including Kaymer.
