NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) _ Henrik Stenson and Nattias Nilsson of Sweden were in a three-way tie for the lead with Trevor Immelman of South Africa after Saturday's third round of the Kenya Open.

Stenson, who had led by a stroke after the second round, shot a 2-under-par 69 for a 203 total at the Muthaiga Country Club. Nilsson closed with a 66.

``I played well and missed the green only once,'' Nilsson said. ``I've been putting well and managed an eagle on the sixth. I just hope for another 66 in the final round.''

Immelman shot a 67, and local professional Peter Njiru, a former caddy at Muthaiga Club, shot a 66 to pull within a shot of the leaders.

Ilya Goroneskoul of France, who had been a stroke back at the start of the day, fell off the pace with a 75.
