Li Haotong made history on Saturday when he became the first player to make three eagle-twos in the same round on the European Tour.

The 23 year old made a total of four eagles in his third-round 62 at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club, with his fourth coming at the long 18th.

Li will head into the final round of the Saudi International powered by SBIA tied at the top of the leaderboard alongside Dustin Johnson.

Here, we take a look at how Li made his quartet of eagles.


Li kicked off his third round with a delightful eagle, holing his approach from the rough to get off to the perfect start.


He repeated the trick at the par-four tenth, following up another big drive with a lovely chip from the fairway for another eagle.


Li's eagle on the 17th was all about the drive. He absolutely launched his tee-shot to within five feet of the hole before calmly rolling in for his third eagle-two of the day.


And he was at it again at the 18th, dropping in his eight-foot putt to put a fourth eagle on his card.
