Swede Christian Nilsson takes a four shot lead into the final round of the SAINT-OMER Open presented by Neuflize OBC today following a sparkling 65 yesterday at Aa St Omer Golf Club.
Nilsson, who started his third round two shots adrift of overnight leader Wade Ormsby of Australia, carded five birdies and an eagle to move clear of the field, with his only dropped shot coming at the par four 12th hole.
His sensational round moved him to 11 under par, with England’s James Morrison his nearest challenger on seven under after he signed for a third round of 70.
Nilsson said: “You have to be accurate off the tee round here, which I’ve managed to do; and you also need to think a bit more about your tee shots, because you can’t just pull your driver out your bag every time.
“You also have to think a lot about your approach shots, because the pin positions are quite tricky. So it makes it a lot of fun to play. But it also means I’ll have to concentrate on the final day.”
