Kaymer Keeps Six-Stroke Lead in Abu Dhabi

German golfer Martin Kaymer has fired a 4-under-par 68 to maintain a six-stroke lead after the third round of the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates.

Kaymer, last year's European PGA Tour rookie of the year, played bogey-free golf Saturday to move to 17-under-par 199 for three rounds.

Anthony Wall of Britain had a 7-under-par 65 Saturday to move from a tie for ninth into second place at 11-under-par (205) for the tournament.

Henrik Stenson of Sweden is in third place at 10-under-par (206) after shooting a 3-under-par 69 on the Abu Dhabi Golf Club course. Lee Westwood of England is in fourth place at 9-under-par (207) after he also shot a 7-under-par 65.

The tournament is the first of three European PGA tournaments in the Middle East. Next week, the Tour moves to Doha for the Qatar Masters. In two weeks, the Tour stops in Dubai for the Desert Classic.
