There is a three-way tie at the top of the 72° Open D’Italia tournament at Golf Club Milano in Italy. Martin Kaymer, Jens Fahrbring and Romain Wattel have a two shot lead over the chasing pack.
Martin fired a third round -7 under par 65 to join Jens and Romain at the top of the 72º Open D’Italia leaderboard with a -17 under par 54 hole total.
Martin was one of the favorites coming into this tournament, he thought he could have done better today, with a couple of putts that should have gone in;
“I started off well, but those last three holes I think I left a couple out there especially on 16 and 17, they were good putts they just didn’t go in.”
“Sixteen was a very, very poor chip but that’s okay, seven under par is a very good round.”
“I am looking forward to tomorrow, it will be a challenge to myself and a challenge to beat my opponents. I am up there with a chance to win on Sunday and that’s all you want at the end of the day.”
“It’s important that you don’t look too far ahead and start to think about what could happen.”
“You also don’t want to rush into an aggressive mode too soon. It might be the case that some of the guys who are out before me make a really fast start so it is a fine line to figure out what the best plan is.”
“You have to also enjoy the day and I think I have enough experience of being in this position to enjoy it.”
“It will be interesting to see what happens over the first nine holes and to see how I feel mentally.”
“Once you get on the back nine you have to be a bit more spontaneous and adjust to the situation around you.”
Three players are in a group at -15 under for the competition; Bernd Wiesberger, -5 under bogey free 67 today, Lucas Bjerregaard, -2 under 70 and Fabrizio Zanotti, -4 under par 68.
This will be an exciting finish to the 72º Open D’Italia tournament, with 15 players within five shots of the lead, including Danny Willett who is currently second in the Race to Dubai, and -12 under here in Italy.
