Ormsby still in Denmark mix

A final hole bogey soured an otherwise brilliant back nine for Wade Ormsby who heads to the final round of the Made in Denmark tournament just four shots off the pace.

Ormsby reeled off five birdies in six holes to begin his run to the clubhouse and at 11-under for the week through 17 holes was inside the top five.

However, on a much easier day for scoring the field took advantage at Himmerland GC and Ormsby’s eventual eight birdie/four bogey effort saw him drop one place on the leaderboard to T7.

Among those to go low Saturday was the ever popular senior John Daly who added a 65 to opening rounds of 67-70 to be 11-under and sharing third.

Daly dropped just one shot Saturday among seven birdies to move up 10 places in the standings and will start the final round just three behind outright leader David Horsey.

The Englishman produced some magic of his own on day three with a 7-under 64, the best score of the day and enough to open a two shot lead over American Julian Suri who is second alone at 12-under.

Daly is one of four players sharing third while local favourite Thorbjorn Olesen is one of five  at 10-under after a thrilling 65.

Olesen sent the crowds into raptures with his seventh birdie of the day at the famed par-3 16th but, like Ormsby, dropped a shot at the last to spoil an otherwise blemish free day.

Ormsby will likely have mixed feelings about his round which featured three birdies but also three bogeys on the outward half.

The 37-year-old has just one career victory to his name but has played some of his best golf of the year in the past two weeks.

Ormsby held the outright lead heading to the final round in Fiji last week and while he faded to T5 will have learnt a lot from the experience.

Ben Eccles and Richard Green were the other Australians to make the cut, Eccles 4-under for the tournament and T38 while Green has been a model of consistency with three consecutive rounds of 70 to be one further back and T44.
