Another excellent round puts Paul Dunne in contention in Denmark

Shane Lowry also followed up his outstanding 65 yesterday with a two-under 69.

PAUL DUNNE HAS given himself a chance of securing a first European Tour victory after carding a two-under-par 69 in his third round at the Made in Denmark tournament.

The Greystones golfer registered three birdies and one bogey — just his second of the tournament — in another solid effort, after posting 68 in his first two rounds.

After a mixed first full term on the European Tour, Dunne is now in line to record the best finish of his relatively young pro career.

Today’s round moved him to eight-under for the tournament and he sits in a tie for sixth, four shots behind leader Bradley Dredge from Wales.

Belgium’s Thomas Pieters, David Lipsky of the United States and Adrian Otaegui of Spain are just one shot behind Dredge heading into tomorrow’s final round.

Shane Lowry also carded a two-under 69 today, following a 75 on Thursday and a tied round-of-the-day 65 yesterday, to sit in a tie for 20th on four-under, as he attempts to convince Darren Clarke that he should select him as one of his Captain’s Picks for next month’s Ryder Cup.

Northern Ireland’s Cormac Sharvin is two shots further back on two-under after a 69 today while Peter Lawrie struggled at the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, carding an eight-over 78 to drop to eight-over for the tournament.

On the PGA Tour, Rory McIlroy is currently tied for 23rd on two-under, although he’s only through 14 holes in his third round.
