Lee Westwood is three shots behind joint leaders Jorge Campillo and Dylan Frittelli after three rounds of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia.

Westwood, who was not won a title for almost four years, carded a two-under-par 70 on Saturday following his superb second-round 62.

Both Campillo and Frittelli posted six-under third rounds of 66 to reach 15-under after 54 holes.

South African Frittelli said afterwards: "It was a good round. I started off a bit slow but some good birdies during the middle part of the round and that kept me going.

"It is super bunched. A lot of Japanese guys up there, a few other Spanish guys, Jorge played great today with me. I’m excited to mix it up."

Meanwhile, Campillo said: "It was good. I played solid for most of the round. I had a few tough holes but I managed to make the putts so overall I played solid. It is a good day.

"I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. It is a nice position to be and I’m excited."

Westwood is 1001.00 to win the Maybank Championship, while Campillo can be backed at 101.00 and Frittelli at 501.00.
