Following a third round littered with red numbers, recaps a low, low scoring Moving Day at the 2017 DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

201 - Justin Rose will take a one-shot lead into the final round at Jumeirah Golf Estates after adding a 65 to the rounds of 66-70 over the first two days

4 - On Sunday, Rose will attempt to become just the fourth player in the last 28 years to win in three consecutive starts on the European Tour after Tiger Woods, Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy

8 - Previous 54-hole leads for Rose on the European Tour. He has gone on to win on five of those occasions

73 - Rose is now 73 shots under par for his last 20 rounds on the Earth Course 

30 - Tommy Fleetwood's back nine on Moving Day. The Race to Dubai leader birdied eight of his last 11 holes to book himself a spot in the penultimate tee time tomorrow. 

63 - Dylan Frittelli tied his career low round on Saturday to book himself a place in the final tee time of 2017 alongside Rose

4 - Having already won Rookie of the Year, Jon Rahm could yet join fellow Spaniards Jose Maria Olazabal and Sergio Garcia in the rookie record books. Olazabal finished a record-high second for a rookie in 1986, while Garcia finished third in 1999. As it stands in the projected Race to Dubai Rankings, Rahm would finish third in the final Race to Dubai standings

20 - Birdies thus far for Fleetwood and Rahm, three more than any other player in the field

68.3 - Saturday saw the easiest scoring day in the history of the DP World Tour Championship, beating the previous low of 69.13 set during round four in 2012

58 - Straight holes without a bogey in this event for Kiradech Aphibarnrat after going bogey-free in the final round in 2016 and the first two rounds in 2017. He finally dropped a shot on the fifth on Saturday.

5 - Birdies in a row to finish for Kiradech, who signed for a 67 after being level par through 13 holes

3.17 - The par four 15th played just 279 yards in the third round after the tees were moved up. At an average score of 3.17 on Saturday it became the easiest par four of the 2017 season, 0.13 shots lower than the ninth at Close House during the third round of the British Masters

30 - Overnight leader and defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick was the only player in top 30 not to break par on Saturday as the Englishman slipped into a share of 13th place
