Breezy conditions for Round 3 of the Volvo China Open produced 19 sub-par rounds and a field average score of 72.81. Brett Rumford leads on -12 with Mikko Ilonen, Pablo Larrazábal, Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Joost Luiten following behind. We analyse how they did it plus we round up the Genworth Statistics leaders.

Brett RUMFORD -12

Last week when Brett Rumford won in Korea he ranked 1st for all three of the Genworth Putting Statistics categories, and he is well on the way to achieving the same feat this week at the Volvo China Open. When combining the seven rounds of golf the 35 year old Australian golfer has single putted 68 times (that’s 54% of holes played). We may be witnessing one of the best putting displays in European Tour history.

Mikko ILONEN -11

Mikko Ilonen found it a little tougher going over the Binhai Lake course today in comparison to his magical 63 yesterday, but he still managed to keep himself right up there to partner Brett Rumford in the final group tomorrow. The 33 year old golfer from Finland is scoring very well on the Par 3's and Par 4's, but he may need to make a few more birdies on the Par 5’s tomorrow to take the title.

Ambassador

Pablo LARRAZÁBAL -10

Genworth Ambassador Pablo Larrazábal will have mixed emotions after his third round 69, which included seven birdies and four bogeys. Statistically his entire game seems to be in great shape, ranking high in most of the Genworth Statistics categories. If it weren’t for a few short missed putts on the back nine today the 29 year old Spanish golfer would be tied for the lead.
