Mikko Ilonen extended his advantage over the opening holes of the Nordea Masters final round.

The Finn, seeking a first European Tour title since winning this event in 2007, birdied the second and third at Bro Hof Slott to get to 20 under par.

A runner-up in China and Morocco already this year, Ilonen moved three clear of home favourite and 2011 winner Alex Noren, who birdied the short fourth.

Another Swede, Jonas Blixt, and last week’s BMW PGA Champion Matteo Manassero, were tied for third on 15 under.
