SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) Rasmus Hojgaard holds a slender one-shot lead from George Coetzee at the French Open after making a terrible start to his third round and ending with a 3-over 74 on Saturday.

The Danish player had a six-shot lead overnight on Frenchman Paul Barjon, but he slipped from 15 under to 12 under.

Coetzee - a five-time European tour winner - was third overnight and the South African's 3-under 68 put him in contention at 11 under after Hojgaard's early blunders.
