Lee carded a third round -5 under par 67 to lead the Made in Denmark event after 54 holes at -16 under, and will take a one shot advantage into the final round tomorrow;
45-year-old Lee is not expecting to play Ryder Cup, even if he wins here;
“He doesn’t want an old man like me playing, he wants the young kids in, I’ve played ten and I know when my game is really on song ready for the Ryder Cup and I think there are more people deserving of a pick than me.”
“I played great all day. I made one bad swing off the 18th tee but it’d be stupid to focus on that as well as I played, I had it under control all day.”
“I’m not thinking any kind of score, I’m just going to try and go out and play like I’ve been playing. I’m hitting the ball solid and I’m rolling it well on the greens.”
Tied in second place at -15 under are Jonathan Thomas, -4 under 68 today and Steven Brown, -9 under 63, both from England, they are joined by Thomas Detry from Germany, with his -6 under 66 today.
Best placed home player from Denmark is Lucas Bjerregaard with a third round -4 under par 68 giving him a tie for 8th place at -11 under par.
Lots of guys are in the race to get picked for the Ryder Cup by European Team Captain Thomas Bjorn, who has four wild card picks to decide on. Tomorrow is an important day for many to prove themselves worthy of a place on the Team.
