Dylan Frittelli and Jorge Campillo both fired bogey-free 66s to grab a share of the lead after three rounds of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia.
South African Frittelli has only dropped two shots in 54 holes, while Spaniard Campillo has not posted a bogey in his last 38.
The pair stand at 15 under par, among a leading group of 18 players who are separated by just three strokes.
During an exciting third day at Saujana Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur, as many as 13 players shared or held the lead at some point.
And while Campillo heads the European challenge, the leading British competitor heading into Sunday's final round is Scot Marc Warren whose 69 contained five birdies and three bogeys.
Warren is two shots off the pace in a tie for fifth, while England's Lee Westwood is a further stroke behind.
The 44-year-old from Lincolnshire followed yesterday's 11-birdie 62 with a more conservative two-under-par 70.
The day's lowest score belonged to Ryo Ishikawa who came home in 30 for a 63, to stand two shots adrift of the joint-leaders.
In-form world No 47 Frittelli, whose last 10 events include a victory, one second place, and five other top-20 finishes, said: "I think a lot of the guys are getting frustrated with the greens.
"But I'm just trying to stay as positive as I can, and just try and speak to them nice and get the ball to go in the hole.
"I started off a bit slow but made some good birdies during the middle part of the round and that kept me going.
"It is super-bunched. A lot of Japanese guys up there, a few other Spanish guys, Jorge played great today with me. I'm excited to mix it up."
As for Campillo, the 32-year-old has never won on the European Tour having finished runner-up three times.
He said: "I played solid for most of the round. I had a few tough holes but I managed to make the putts so overall it is a good day. It is a nice position to be and I'm excited."
