DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Stephen Gallacher shot a 10-under 62 on Saturday to grab a three-shot lead at the Dubai Desert Classic and break a three-round scoring record set by Tiger Woods 12 years ago.

The 111th-ranked Scotsman, who finished second last year in Dubai, is looking for his first European Tour win since 2004. Gallacher holed a bunker shot on 18 for an eagle to finish with a 21-under total of 195. That improved on Woods' tournament mark by a shot and just missed tying the course record of 61 set back in 1994 by Ernie Els.

Overnight leader Richard Sterne (66) tried to keep pace with the Scotsman, sinking long birdie putts on the eighth and 11 holes and then a 45-footer from the fringe on 15. Thorbjorn Olesen (67) was five shots back in third place.
