Frenchman Edouard Dubois produced another magical first nine holes to tie level with Andrea Pavan midway through the final round of the Kärnten Golf Open presented by Mazda.

Pavan was five shots ahead at the start of the final day, but Dubois birdied the third, fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth holes to reel in the Italian, who reached the turn in level par.

Yesterday in the third round Dubois was six under after nine holes, but only managed a solitary birdie on the back nine for a seven under par 65. Pavan had a two under par 70 in the third round as his lead was cut from seven shots to five.

Chris Paisley and Bjorn Åkesson were both one under at the turn to lie at 15 under.
