The Englishman Matt Wallace and the Swede Marcus Kinhult are bound by the leadership of the British Masters who enter Southport on the last Sunday of Sunday.

The pair are both 14 years old with Richie Ramsay from Scotland, two shots behind Hillside.

The Tommy Fleetwood from England stepped back in a draw for fourth, three shots, after a four-under-round of 68.

Wallace had taken a one-shot lead to the third day but his 70 and Kinhult & # 39; s round of 68 saw the lead role being shared.

The Englishman birdied the first three holes but a first bogey of the tournament at 12 and a double-bogey six at 15 saw him slip backwards

Kinhult hit five birdies, an eagle, a bogey and a double bogey in his four-under-round and took the clubhouse ahead of 14 under before Wallace birdied the 17th to move level.

"Obviously I am frustrated with dropping a pair on the 15th hole, but I think I showed a little bit of character not to let it affect me too much and I played the last three holes very pretty, "said Wallace.

"I tried to extract a piece from Tiger's book [Woods] and have them try to catch me, but I took two bad photos today and that's what happens at golf and I am quite pleased with how I treated myself there.

"I would have taken two of them at the beginning of the day, seeing how windy it was. We are in top form. It's not about winning on Saturday. It's about putting yourself in a good position, so look forward to tomorrow. "

Ryder Cup star Fleetwood, the host of the tournament, followed a birdie on the eighth with back-to-back bogeys but reignited his challenge through an opening of 25 feet for eagle on the 11th and making of three further birdies on the back nine.
