DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Henrik Stenson closed in on the European Tour money title Saturday, birdieing four of his last five holes for a 5-under 67 and a one-shot lead after three rounds of the season-ending World Tour Championship.

The Swede is at 17-under 199 and is trying to become the first player to win the FedEx Cup and European money title in the same year.

Victor Dubuisson of France, coming off his first European Tour victory at the Turkish Airlines Open, is in second place after a 64. England's Ian Poulter (66) and Spain's Alejandro Canizares (70) share third place, another three shots back.

Dubuisson pulled even for the lead but Stenson made three straight birdies starting at the 14th hole and sank a tap-in birdie on the 18th.
