MUNICH — Alexander Levy overcame two bogeys to shoot a 4-under 68 in the third round Saturday to pull into a three-way tie with Ernie Els and Alex Noren atop the leaderboard of the BMW International Open.

The trio was even at 15-under 201 heading into Sunday's final round.

Els, who had a one-stroke lead and shot 69, remains confident he can claim the title. The two-time winner of the British Open and U.S. Open says, "I'm playing nicely."

One stroke behind the leaders are

Matthew Baldwin and Thomas Bjorn, who holed nine birdies were one shot back, while Peter Uihlein was another stroke further behind in sixth after a 67.

Play was delayed by one hour at the start and again later due to heavy rain.
