197 - Lee Slattery leads the way on 16 under par in Italy, with an aggregate total of 197.

62 - The Englishman shot the joint-lowest round of the year on Saturday. His 62 is also the joint-lowest round in nine European Tour Rolex Series events.

1.62 - Slattery's Putts per Greens in Regulation is the best in the field at 1.62.

20 - The last time Slattery led/co-led was at the 2017 D+D REAL Czech Masters, 20 events ago. He went on to finish in second place.

16 - Slattery climbed 16 places to lead on Moving Day.

54 - Thorbjorn Olesen is one back on 15 under par. The Dane's four tour wins all came after he held the 54-hole lead.

23 - Danny Willett shot three consecutive rounds of sub-70 totals for the first time since the Maybank Championship, 23 events ago.

85 - Francesco Molinari's excellent run of holes without a bogey ended at the par four sixth hole. The Italian went 85 holes without a dropped shot, going back to Friday at last week's BMW PGA Championship.

91 - Molinari's run was the best since Tiger Woods' stretch of 91 holes without a bogey. Woods' run lasted from the second round of the 2000 WGC Championship to the third round of the 2001 Johnnie Walker Classic.

13 - The top 13 in Italy are all previous European Tour winners.
