James Morrison moves ahead on moving day in the BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried in Germany.
James recorded a -5 under par 67 in the third round of the BMW International Open, in Munich, and will take a two shot lead into the final round tomorrow, at -16 under par.
James won the Open de España in May, and is in good form, but was upset at carding a bogey six at the par five 18th;
“I played good again, I didn’t really give anything away.”
“The last was disappointing but I had such a bad lie on the left-hand side and to that pin.”
“The scoring has always been low over the years, so you have just got to keep going low and keep making birdies and I did that.”
“I’ll keep trying, hopefully draw on Spain’s good vibes and see what happens.”
In second place at -14 under par, after his -6 under third round of 66 is Chris Paisley, a qualifying school graduate, who is yet to record a top-ten finish on the European Tour, but is in a good position here to make his mark;
“I’m excited to be honest, I think I’m going to be playing in the final group of a European Tour event on Sunday, so who doesn’t want to do that.”
“I’m really proud of how I played today. It’s the first time I’ve been in this position in a European Tour event.
“I’ve always worked hard and felt like I had a pretty good game. I’ve just had a slow progression I guess.
“This year, I’ve played a lot of good golf, but I had a poor year last year and my self-belief has taken a while to catch up with my game. I feel it’s starting to do that now.”
“I’m playing well but I’ve been getting in positions and then falling back just because of a bit of nerves or whatever.”
“Today I felt really comfortable. I was nervous, but I wasn’t ever worrying about messing up. I was always looking ahead of me and trying to make birdies. I think that’s the difference.”
Thongchai Jaidee sits in third place, three shots back at -13 under par, a -4 under par third round moving the Thai up the leaderboard, and into contention.
Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello fell away carding a third round +2 over 74 to be T8, while compatriot Carlos del Moral climbed 33 places, with the best round of the day -7 under par 65, to be T5 at -11 under.
