Dubai, United Arab Emirates • Henrik Stenson closed in on the European Tour money title Saturday, birdieing four of the last five holes to take a one-shot lead in the season-ending World Tour Championship.

Trying to become the first player to win the FedEx Cup and European title in the same year, the Swede finished with a 5-under 67 to reach 17-under 199 on Jumeriah's Earth Course.

Stenson also leads the Race to Dubai standings. The points champion will receive $1 million from a $3.75 million bonus pool that counts on the final money list. In September, Stenson won the PGA Tour's season-ending Tour Championship to take the FedEx Cup title and $10 million bonus.

France's Victor Dubuisson, coming off a victory last week in Turkey, was second after a 64.

OHL Classic

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico • Harris English and Robert Karlsson shared the lead in the rain-delayed OHL Classic when third-round play was suspended because of darkness.

English and Karlsson were 15 under overall with 11 holes left in the round.

English matched the lowest round of his PGA Tour career Saturday morning with a 9-under 62 on Mayakoba Resort's El Camaleon course. The 24-year-old former Georgia star won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June for his first PGA Tour title.

LPGA Tour

Guadalajara, Mexico • Lexi Thompson moved into position for her second victory in her last four starts, taking the third-round lead in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.

The 18-year-old Thompson shot a 5-under 67 to reach 13-under 203 at Guadalajara Country Club. She had a one-stroke lead over South Korea's I.K. Kim.

Thompson won the 2011 LPGA Navistar Classic at 16, and took the LPGA Malaysia last month for her second tour title.
