Von Dellingshausen and Warren share 54-hole lead in Austria

Nicolai von Dellingshausen and Marc Warren head a packed Austrian Open leaderboard after battling thumping rain on day three at Diamond Country Club.

A far-cry from yesterday’s blistering heat, reaching highs of 35 degrees, persistent rain fell in Atzenbrugg during the day. Von Dellingshausen and Warren lead by one stroke on 11 under par, with six golfers within two strokes ahead of tomorrow’s final round.

Von Dellingshausen set the clubhouse target after a two under par round of 70, which included three birdies in his first four holes. The German dropped shots on the eighth and 14th holes, but recovered with his fourth birdie of the day on the 15th to reach 11 under par.

Warren made the turn one under par after three birdies and two bogeys on the front nine and matched von Dellingshausen’s birdie on the 15th to join him in a share of the lead.

Scotsman Warren will go in search of a fourth European Tour victory, and his first since 2014 Made in Denmark, while von Dellingshausen, of Germany, is bidding for a maiden title.

In a share of third place on ten under par are Spain’s Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez, Scotsman Connor Syme and Darius van Driel of Holland.

Syme celebrated his 25th birthday in some style, recording the only bogey-free round of the day – a three under par 69. Making his 26th European Tour start this week, Syme’s best result to date came on this golf course in 2018 when he finished runner-up to Mikko Korhonen at the Shot Clock Masters.

2013 Austrian Open champion Joost Luiten of Holland, Germany’s Marcel Schneider and Joël Stalter of France share sixth place on nine under par.
