Two golfers are now tied at the top of the Porsche European Open leaderboard, Bryson DeChambeau, USA, has company in the form of Richard McEvoy of England, after 54 holes at Green Eagle Golf Courses in Germany, where two hours and 50 minutes of play were lost due to lightning in the area.
Richard, -3 under 69 today, has joined Bryson, -2 under 70 at the top of the Porsche European Open leaderboard at -12 under for the tournament after 54 holes.
Richard said he missed a few putts on the back nine;
“It was good. I was a little disappointed with the back nine, missed a few chances coming in on the last four holes or so but the change in conditions made it quite tough.”
“My mind set will be much the same as last week. I’ve been playing very solidly, I’m enjoying being at the top of the leaderboard which is great and I’m not putting too much pressure on myself.”
“I’m just playing golf, exactly like I did last week and I prevailed then so fingers crossed that I can finish it off again tomorrow.”
Bryson was happy the storm came through;
“I hung in there, on the front nine I had nothing,”
“I was so happy the storm came through because that gave me a little time to get the game back in order and I was able to do that and play well on the back nine.”
“If I’m comfortable out there and I can hit the right shots and have the kind of repeatability that I think I can produce out there, it’s going to be a tough one for anybody to get me.”
Masters Tournament champion Patrick Reed, USA, -3 under 69 today, and Matthias Schwab, Austria, with a third round -2 under 70 share third place at -11 under par.
Paul Casey, England, is alone in fourth place at -9 under par, carding his third consecutive round of -3 under 69.
