David Law will be hoping to shake off his "annoying" finish to round three as he goes in search of a second DP World Tour title at the 2022 Ras Al Khaimah Championship presented by Phoenix Capital.
The Scot had led after rounds one and two at Al Hamra Golf Club and held a three-shot lead on day three after making a fourth birdie of the day on the 11th.
But while playing partner Nicolai Højgaard birdied five of his last six holes to surge to the top of the leaderboard, Law bogeyed the last after taking on an ambitious second shot and will head into the final round three shots back after a 69.
The 30-year-old was eager to focus on the positives, however, as he looks to add to his victory at the 2019 ISPS Handa Vic Open.
“It’s annoying to finish like that," he said. "I played pretty good until the last four holes and then I struggled.
"Got a bit greedy, thought we could maybe nick it with a three wood, chase it up the front and make a four which is a mentality you want to have. You’re always trying to better yourself and get better.
“I probably shouldn’t have taken that shot on but if I had that shot again I’d probably do it again too.
“I played really well, felt comfortable. It wasn’t that great at the start and then I birdied three and that settled me down, and I played well from then. There were a lot of positives and a lot of things to take into tomorrow.
“It would have been nice to nick one at the last and be closer to Nicolai but it hasn’t worked out that way.
“I think it’s going to be a bit winder tomorrow so it’ll be a bit tricky. It’ll be much the same as today for me, I thought we were in a good mind space, we had good shots, executed what we discussed until the last where we made a little bit of a mistake.
"But on the whole I thought we were really good so it’ll be more of the same tomorrow.”
