Otto Overtakes Karlsson in Italy


European TourMILAN, Italy -- Hennie Otto shot a 9-under 63 Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the Italian Open.
The South African had 11 birdies and two bogeys in the third round at Castello di Tolcinasco Golf and Country Club. He is at 22-under 194.
I played very well today, very well indeed and I am very pleased, Otto said. I put the ball close to the pins with my irons today and gave myself a lot of chances.
Robert Karlsson, who shot a course-record 61 Friday, had a 69 to be in a tie for second place with Christian Nilsson and Alvaro Velasco.
