KLM Open - Day three digest

Everything you need to know from day three in the Netherlands.

Mikko Korhonen stayed ahead, we had a third ace of the week, the Italians were making putts from everywhere and a few others were not requiring them on day three of the KLM Open.

Here is everything you need to know from Saturday at The International.

Korhonen keeps his nose in front

Korhonen will take a one-shot lead into the final round as he goes in search of a wire-to-wire victory. The Finn started his week with a brilliant 64 containing a hole-in-one and has been on top ever since, following a second-round 68 with a 70 to get to 11 under in Amsterdam. Italian Guido Migliozzi carded the lowest round of the day with a 66 to become the nearest challenger, one clear of countryman Matteo Manassero, American Sean Crocker and Dane Rasmus Højgaard. There is more than just the trophy at stake this week, with Korhonen and Migliozzi currently on track to earn spots at The Open Championship as the two leading players not already exempt.

C-ACE-y Jarvis

Casey Jarvis made the third hole-in-one of the week when he holed a five iron from 199 yards at the seventh and there is no reason to think it will end there. The 11th Beat the Pro hole is playing just over 100 yards but so far our aces have come at the fourth, seventh and 17th. Could we see another on Sunday at a far more gettable test?

Magic from Molinari

A 66-foot putt is impressive enough but a 66-foot putt that goes off the green, over a ridge, through the fringe, back onto the green and into the cup is very special indeed. Take a bow Edoardo Molinari.

More magic from Manassero

Not wanting to be outdone by his compatriot, Manassero made a putt of his own from over 60 feet on the fifth. Something in the water in Italy, clearly.

Not all pars are equal

If you're going to get yourself in trouble, you should really be able to get yourself out of it. Just like Højgaard.

No putters required

Manassero and Matt Wallace were producing some wedge magic.
