Li leads in Dubai

In ideal scoring conditions at the Emirates Golf Club, the 42-year-old Donaldson took a one-shot lead over Anthony Wall and David Horsey.

In the 108 holes McIlroy has now played since his return to the game following a four month sabbatical, he is a phenomenal 33 under par, having had just four bogeys.

In addition to McIlroy, Li has Alexander Levy chasing him after the Frenchman, helped by a hole-in-one at the fourth moved into contention on 17-under, with South African Haydn Porteous on the same total after a matching 65. Hopefully [I'll] get off to a good start tomorrow.

But Li, the world number 60, who won the 2016 China Open and made headlines in June when he threw his putter in a lake at the French Open only for it to be fished out by his mother, took the outright lead at the eighth with a birdie from eight feet, his fourth of the day. "I didn't get off to too bad a start, just a couple of loose ones".

"I didn't expect to play as well as I did last week and it's been nice to continue that into this week", said McIlroy, who finished tied for third in Abu Dhabi. The last two Dubai winners have gone on to win the Masters.

Round of the day went to Andy Sullivan, the Englishman surging up the leaderboard with a 63, leaving him on -16, four adrift of Li but Donaldson's challenge faltered with a three-over 75.

However, according to Embiid , "a famous girl" he was trying to get with told him to come back when he was an All-Star . The fans accounted for 50 percent of the vote total, with the media members and players accounting for 25 percent each.

"I feel like if I play my game I'll be able to shoot something a bit lower tomorrow and I feel like I will need something a bit lower to win", McIlroy told Sky Sports after his third round.

"Hopefully I can do my best out there and have some low scores".

"This is one of my favourite tournaments of the year, a place I've always done well at, some good memories".

"Look forward to getting out there again this afternoon".

"Played really solid. Especially had a couple up-and-downs and was quite happy to shoot eight-under on this course", said Li, who will become the first male Chinese player to crack the top 50 in the world rankings if he goes on to win.
