The Porsche European Open has been reduced to 64 holes due to the long delays caused by early morning fog at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach, in Germany. Alex Levy, from France, still leads comfortably at the end of the second round.

Alex came back on day three to complete his one hole of the second round at -8 under par 63, and sit on top of the Porsche European Open leaderboard at -17 under par, and will take a four shot lead into the final and third round tomorrow.

“I had four good shots and a nice par today but it was no good coming up this morning and seeing the fog again.”

“But it’s okay, I just stayed patient and made two good shots, one from the tee and one from the fairway and that’s all I wanted to do.”

“I don’t watch the leaderboard overnight. I’m just trying to think about my own game and do the best that I can and that’s the most important thing.”

Michael Jonzon, from Sweden is in second place at -13 under for his two rounds, he also carded a -8 under par 63 in the second round;

“I always said I function well under these circumstances.”

“I struggle more just trying to make cuts because I can put a lot of pressure on myself. I know what I can do and sometimes I try too much.”

“I’ve been there before. I’m just going to go out tomorrow and try to shoot as good as I can, whatever happens after that is not in my control.”

“I’m going to be trying as hard as I can and be proud of my effort tomorrow.”

In third place at -12 under par is Ross Fisher from England, he had a modest -6 under par 65 second round.

Home favourite Martin Kaymer -7 under 64 is T4 at -11 under par alongside another German in Florian Fritsch, who also carded a second round -7 under 64.

Lee Westwood is still in control in Sweden at the Nordea Masters after the conclusion of the third round at the  Bro Hof Slott GC.  Lee retained his three shot lead after recording a -4 under par third round of 68, for a tournament total of -16 under par. The round did not reach the same classic heights as his stunning second round 64, but it did leave him three clear of fellow Englishman Ross Fisher.  Lee said in interview;

“I played well. I hit a lot of good shots and it was solid stuff. I didn’t get into too much trouble, I had a bit of a flyer on the second and that was the only bogey I made all day.”

Ross Fisher was a happy camper after his beautiful -7 under par third round of 65, and a total for the tournament of -13 under par;

 “I’ve played really nicely, I’m gradually getting better. Hopefully I can continue the trend tomorrow. I’ve gone head to head with Westy a couple of times, he’s a world-class golfer and that’s how we judge our game, against the best players in the world.”

Swedish hopes of a third consecutive home win in this event seemed to have stalled, with Peter Hanson now four shots adrift of the leader after his -3 under par third round of 69. He is the best placed Swede to make a challenge, but he will have to produce something really special to loosen Lee Westwood’s firm grip on this trophy.

Alexander Noren continued with his remarkable recovery from an opening round of 74, carding a second successive 66 to move into fifth on ten under, alongside compatriot Michael Jonzon. Six shots behind an inform Lee Westwood would really seem like an impossible task.
