Round 3 of the BMW Masters presented by SRE Group produced 32 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.47. Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Luke Guthrie lead on -8, with Fdez-Castaño and Bourdy following close behind. We analyse their performances and round up the Genworth Statistics leaders.

Rafa CABRERA-BELLO -8

Rafa Cabrera-Bello converted five birdies during a bogey free third round 67 (the joint low round of the day) to climb up into the lead alongside Guthrie. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 29 year old Spanish golfer ranks 3rd for Driving Distance (behind Colsaerts and McIlroy) and 2nd for Greens in Regulation (behind McIlroy), plus he ranks 1st for Par 5’s in 2 and he has accumulated the most birdies of all the players (15 so far alongside Uihlein and Poulter). Rafa is looking great out there.

Luke GUTHRIE -8

Luke Guthrie converted four birdies against four bogeys on his way to a third round 72, to stay in the lead alongside Cabrera-Bello with 18 holes to play. Unfortunately not all of his Genworth Statistics data is available at the time of this report, but we can see that the 23 year old golfer from the United States ranks 5th for Par 4 Scoring and 1st for Par 5 Scoring (eight under on the Par 5 holes). Luke is 18 holes away from his first European Tour title, which if he carries it off will be completed in style (wire to wire).

Gonzalo FDEZ-CASTAÑO -7

Gonzalo Fdez-Castaño converted six birdies against a single bogey on his way to a third round 67, to sit just one behind going into Sunday. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 33 year old Spanish golfer is very strong across the board, ranking 2nd for Driving Accuracy, 2nd for Greens in Regulation, 9th for Scrambles and 18th for Putts per Round. In this form, the six time individual European Tour winner will surely be confident of his chances to take the title.

Grégory BOURDY -6

Grégory Bourdy converted five birdies during a bogey free third round 67, giving himself a superb opportunity to win his second European Tour title in as many months. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 31 year old French golfer is driving the ball very straight and hitting lots of Greens in Regulation - plus his touch on and around the greens has been sublime, ranking 1st for Scrambles (with 13/16 up and downs for Par) and 4th for Putts per Round (with just 85 putts in total).
