Alongside him, it's 16-under, Autrias Bernd Wiesberger. He had a chance to win last year. His chance perhaps going this time around with a bogey at the 17th, but a 67 for Wiesberger left him too tied for 3rd. alongside Stephen Gallacher , who finished very well with 5 birdies on the back 9, this one at the 17th, a 66 for the Scot.

A round of 66 just 2 weeks after the sad death of his mother, took him all the way from a 126 up to 70th in the race to Dubai.
