Wallace heading to last round in pole position
England’s Matt Wallace shot flawless round 65, -6 to lead the Open Frassanelle with -11 total. Italy’s Corrado De Stefani holed two birdies on the last three holes to stay one shot away. Spain’s David Morago is two shots back.
Wallace teed off from the 10th and turned his first nine holes -2 thanks to birdies on hole number 13 and 15. But on back nine, he dug his advantage with first, one shot gained on the par 5 second and a hat trick of birdies from the 6th.
“Yes feeling really good about my game. I worked hard last week preparing for open q but it wasn’t meant to be on the links course. Over the weekend I had never hit so many balls in my life because after playing in Sweden and Austria it has given me the motivation to want to play on the European Tour every week.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow to see if I can once again go wire to wire. It will be hard but I’m up for the challenge. It’s great to be back playing on the alps tour. The course, food, organisation and the Italian people are great. It makes it even more exciting.”
De Stefani signed for 64, lowest score today, to let only one shot advantage to multiple winner Wallace. The Italian player had the perfect round without any bogeys and if he keeps on playing this way, he might be a real threat to the leader.
Spain’s David Morago, fired best score tie of the day 64. The 22 year old player from Barcelona had eight birdies versus only one bogey today. Morago’s best result this season is a runner up place in Guadalupe where he was defeated by France’s Léo Lespinasse during the play-off.
A group of 3 players including overnight leader France’s Victor Perez, Enrico Di Nitto and Federico Maccario from Italy are -8 total. The cut felt at -1 including 44 players.
