Open de France: Nicolas Colsaerts three clear of George Coetzee

Nicolas Colsaerts moved a step closer to finish his seven-year winless by opening a three-shot lead at the Open de France run on the Union.
As the 2012 Volvo World Match Play Championship, the Ryder Cup star posted a four-under 67 at Le Golf National for to 13 of playing partner George Coetzee for a first European Tour title.
Jamie Donaldson rolled back the years on his 44th birthday to place a third-round 66 and join Kurt Kitayama at a share of third, with Gavin Moynihan and Richie Ramsay five strokes off the pace at tied-fifth along with Joachim B Hansen.
I wasnt really looking at just what the lead was, Colsaerts told Sky Sports. Itd be wonderful to win this thing, but should I keep away from believing that I think my chances are going to be a good deal higher than if I see that thing directly ahead of me
When Coetzee bogeyed the moment, ahead of the Belgian followed a birdie at the fifth with a five-foot profit in the sixth to reach the turn ahead colsaerts started the afternoon in a discussion of the lead but was quickly given the outright advantage.
Kurt Kitayama was Colsaerts nearest challenger until back-to-back bogeys in the 11th saw him slide down the leaderboard, after starting his back nine with a tap-in birdie at the 37, while Coetzee transferred in one.
The South African traded birdies with Colsaerts in the 11th and 12th to observe the pair pull clear of the chasing pack, only for Coetzee into double-bogey both the 13th and autumn three supporting after a wayward tee shot.
Colsaerts bounced straight back from missing a 10-footer to save par at the 17th to pit a birdie from a similar space at the final and keep his cushion, as his round closed with a run of pars.
A birdie raised Kitayama to nine under alongside Donaldson, who watched his single blemish come by means of a three-putt bogey at the 13th and also posted six birdies in his round.
