Shadbolt in the race for back to back win
England’s Tom Shadbolt shot best score of the day to take a one shot lead going into last round of Abruzzo Open. He has an opportunity to win a second title back to back after his victory in Spain in Alps Costa del Sol last month.
The 28 year old player was the first round leader but he struggled to hole birdies during second round. Today, after third round eventually started after 30 minutes delay due to threat of lightening, he recovered his feeling on greens with his putter. He had an amazing series of 6 birdies in a raw from the 4th hole. He turned first nine with score of 29 as he had birdie as well on the first hole.
He only dropped one shot on the 13th and signed for 63, 8 under, tie for best score of the week.
Italian duo Enrico Di Nitto and Federico Maccario is only one shot back. The latter won this season in France but Di Nitto still in the hunt for a maiden title.
A pack of 4 players is 2 shots back of the lead and if one of them shot low tomorrow, the winner might be an outsider such as Daniel Young, Julien Forêt, Kevin Hesbois or Daniel Berna.
