Frenchman Alex Levy led Kiradech Aphibarnrat by two holes and Ryder Cup star Henrik Stenson was one up against Hideto Tanihara after eight holes.

Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood was one down against and S.S.P Chawrasia in match three, while Ross Fisher trailed Yuta Ikeda by the same margin.
