Wiesberger comes to life to lead Made in Denmark by 1 shot
FARSO, Denmark (AP) --- Bernd Wiesberger bogeyed a third hole to finish the
third round and still led the Made in Denmark event by a shot on Saturday.
Seeking a fifth European Tour title, Wiesberger started the day at 5 under and
climbed to 9 under after eight holes. Bogeys either side of the turn set him
back, only for the Austrian to reel off three consecutive birdies on Nos. 12-14
to go to 10 under.
But Wiesberger failed to get up and down on the 18th, and the bogey gave him a
4-under 67 at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, still his lowest round of the year.
That was enough to give him a one-shot lead over Robert MacIntyre of Scotland,
who carded a 3-under 68.
Overnight leader Matthias Schwab of Austria hit a 1-over 72 and dropped to two
shots off the lead. Schwab was tied at 7 under with Max Schmitt of Germany.
Lee Westwood, with an eagle and double bogey, carded the round of the day, a
5-under 66, and was five shots behind Wiesberger.
Wiesberger missed seven months last year because of a wrist injury, but could
post a first top 10, at least, in his 10th tour event this year.
