New Zealand golfer Jae An is three shots off the lead after the third round of the latest tournament on the Canadian Tour today.

The 23-year-old carded a two-under par 70 at the Dakota Dunes Open in Saskatoon to be in a four-way sahre of third and within striking distance of leader American Joe Panzeri heading into the final round.

An birdied three of his opening four holes but then managed only one more birdie and dropped shots at the par-4 eighth and the 176-yard par-3 15th to card his worst round of the tournament after backing up his opening round 67 with a three-under par 69 yesterday.
