The Frenchman followed up his second-round 64 by firing eight birdies on Saturday to get to 15 under and move clear of compatriot Julien Guerrier and Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren.
Lorenzo-Vera came into the weekend two strokes off the pace but surged up the leaderboard in calm conditions at Verdura Golf Club after firing five birdies in a six-hole stretch along the back nine.
“If I bring the good game, I can win for sure,” Lorenzo-Vera said. “If someone just doesn’t go crazy and shoot ten under if it’s good weather, I’ll have a really good chance.”
