STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) Dale Whitnell will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the Scandinavian Mixed, where women and men play on the same course for one prize fund and trophy, after Yannik Paul cut into his advantage Saturday.

The 34-year-old Whitnell, whose sole appearance at a major was 11 years ago, took a big step toward his first career win on the European tour when he shot an 11-under 61 Friday.

He kept that advantage largely intact Saturday with a 70 to move to 19-under 197 overall despite carding his first bogey of the tournament on the second hole and then double bogeys on the ninth and 16th.
