The English Justin Rose stays on course to become world number one once he enters the final round of the Indonesian Masters for the fourth time.

Rose needs a top-12 finish at Royale Jakarta Golf Club to overtake Brooks Koepka at the top of the rankings.

The 38-year-old joined back-to-back rounds of 68 with a one-under-par 71 on Saturday after a birdie on the 18th.

He takes seven shots alongside the Thai Poom Saksansin, who leads with three strokes from the Swede Henrik Stenson.

Rose became for the first time in September the number one in the world and became only the fourth Englishman to do so after Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald.

The Olympic champion and the winner of the US Open 2013 lost the best place for Dustin Johnson later that month and has since been in battle with US Open and PGA Championship holder Koepka to be ranked as & # 39; the world's best.
