ZANDVOORT, Netherlands (AP) - Joost Luiten mastered wet and windy conditions Saturday to shoot a 4-under 66 and take a one-shot lead after the third round of the KLM Open.

Luiten, aiming to become the first home winner of the tournament since Maarten Lafeber won the then-Dutch Open in 2003, chipped in twice during a round that featured six birdies and two bogeys. He has a 10-under total of 200 going into Sunday's fourth round.

Overnight leader Miguel Angel Jimenez slipped to second with a 70 at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club.

Blustery winds and heavy rain made conditions tough on the links course on the North Sea coast west of Amsterdam.

``The first nine was really, really tough,'' Luiten said. ``It was raining really hard and the rain came in sideways. A lot of crosswinds. It was just all about surviving the front nine really and on the back nine the rain went away and it became a little bit easier.''

Luiten, seeking his second win of the season after taking the Lyoness Open in Austria in June, said the crowd helped him around the course.

``You can feel everybody is behind you and cheering you on,'' he said. ``It's great to see all the people out there even on a day like this.''

Jorge Campillo followed his course record-equaling 63 on Friday with a 79 to slump out of contention. Three-time champion Simon Dyson shot a 71 to remain well placed at 7 under heading into the final day.
