The 26-year-old from Spain, ranked 397 in the world, was five shots off the lead after the second round, but a third round nine-under 63 took him to 17 under overall.

Del Moral hit nine birdies in a remarkable day’s work, putting him ahead of Sweden's Joakim Lagergren, who is 14 under after carding a 70.

Second round leader Oliver Wilson of England flopped with a 72 but still lies in third place.
