CHON BURI, Thailand - Overnight leader Charl Schwartzel carded a third-round 68 to extend his lead over Daniel Chopra to five shots at the Thailand Golf Championship on Saturday.

Schwartzel, last year's runner up, shot three birdies and an eagle at the Amata Spring Country Club to go along with a bogey for an overall 18-under 198, staying on track to end a victory drought that stretches back to his Masters win in 2011.

Chopra, who started the round four strokes back, bounced back from a double bogey on the fifth to fire a 69.
