July 14, 2019: Bernd Wiesberger sent records tumbling to open up a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open. Arjuna Awardee, Shubhankar Sharma fired a brilliant round with four-under-par 67 in the penultimate round.
Shubhankar carded seven birdies and three bogeys to finish with four under score on day three. He is lying at T50 with nine-under-131 total.
The Austrian, Bernd fired the lowest round of his career with a 61 on day two at The Renaissance Club and he followed that with a 65 on Saturday to get to 20 under par in the third Rolex Series event of the season.
That was the lowest 54 hole score in the history of this event and the lowest of the 2019 Race to Dubai as Wiesberger chases his sixth European Tour title and second of the season after his victory at Made in Denmark in May.
South African Erik van Rooyen carded a round of 67 to sit at 18 under par, two shots ahead of Italian Nino Bertasio and Frenchman Romain Langasque.
English pair Lee Slattery and Matt Wallace join Welshman Jamie Donaldson, Italian Lorenzo Gagli and Adrian Otaegui of Spain in a tie for fifth place at 15 under par, with the 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson, Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick and Italian Andrea Pavan a shot further back.
There will be another trophy up for grabs on Sunday as the inaugural EDGA Scottish Open concludes before the final round of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
George Groves – the current number one in the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability – and fellow Englishman Mike Browne share the lead going into the final round of the new 36 hole event for Golfers with Disability, with the ten players tackling the same layout as the European Tour field.
