Benn Barham birdied the first hole of his third round to extend his lead to three shots at the Austrian Golf Open.

The Englishman, 13 under at halfway following rounds of 63 and 66, has been working with a new coach recently in a bid to improve his fortunes and continued to display his good form as he played the first five holes at Fontana in one under.

Australian Richard Green, second overnight, was level par for his opening five holes and had been joined by Swede Pelle Edberg and South African Louis Oosthuizen on 11 under.

Scotland’s David Drysdale and Dane Søren Hansen were a shot further back on a sunny day in Oberwaltersdorf just outside Vienna.

England’s Richard Bland had set the clubhouse target at ten under with a fine round of 65 as the low scoring continued.
