Victor Perez, very close to a great duo…

Cannon starter (Birde 1, Eagle 2), Victor Perez, winner of last week’s Dutch Open, completed his third round in Hamburg with a card of 71 (-1) and took complete control of the tournament at -5 (211). He is a very small point ahead of compatriot Julian Braun and Swede Joachim Lagergren. Only ten players score below par after 54 holes…

Then Tarbais admitted that he never felt fit, and when the planets line up, you have to take advantage of that. He took it well because he is on top in Hamburg after 54 holes. Too close to an unpublished double copy on DP World Tour

Two points behind the English Jordan Smithmidterm leader, Victor Perez He quickly rose to prominence by firing his moving day with a birdie in 1 and a slot in one at 2 thanks to an ingenious 6-iron shot. In two holes, he was more than catching up, especially since Smith conceded at the same time as a bogeyman on the same hole #2…

The follow-up, however, was less sparkling, punctuated by a first bogey at 5 followed by a second bogey at 9 (then regaining a 3 point lead). But above all when returning is the extreme complexity of the northern path of Green Eagle golf courses Somewhat dampened the fervor of the French, they were forced to dismiss two new ghosts (on the 13th and then on the 15th) but still signed an excellent 71 (-1). One of the eleven red cards of the day (2 players, South African Justin Walters and English Tommy Fleetwood managed to play 69).

With his very powerful last shot over four meters on the green on day 18, Perez captured -5 (211) from the header, ahead of the Swede by one point. Joachim Lagergren Antibes Julian Brownboth are also 71.

It’s still very open

It was a curvy part with a perfect start but the track is still toughanalyzes the current 100th player in the world. The result below par remains very positive. Everyone was going to sign up for a par today…but the day is still far from over. I repeat myself but the course is very demanding. Even if there is no wind, It remains very difficult. So I try to focus on every shot. I think tomorrow I will be able to take advantage of last week’s experience but the leaderboard is still very intense with a lot of players in the game. So it’s still very open! »

The French will be in the final segment on Sunday from 1:00pm. The first French woman since then Roman Wattel And the Joel Stalter to me Dutch Open 2017.

Julian Braun, still on track to qualify for the US Open, but could blame himself for missing his match altogether on the 18th when he’s been on top since his volley on the 16th. Fall after ball in the water to the left of the fairway lane and put, he missed again, finally forced him to end his day with a nasty double ghost at this final rate of 5. Too bad!

I’m obviously a little disappointed with the ending but I would have signed every day to get such a cardconfirms Julian Braun into the microphone for the DP World Tour. The course is very challenging, the flags are complex… In the position I was in, being able to play below par allows me to be in a good position for tomorrow. This is the most important. It’s also rewarding to be where I am before the last lap, having set up my game for the first three days. It will happen tomorrow but I will do my best… »

It remains to be seen if this gap will be enough for Victor Perez to score a third streak in his European Tour record, given that the Chinese Huatong Li And the Dutch Will Besling, Fourth, two heroines just behind. same Justin Walters (only the sixth at -2) but also the four chasers at -1, ie the Dane Niklas Norgaard MullerThe English Jordan Smith and Richard Mansell as well as the Dutch Dan Huizing within reach of the driver.
