Dodt leads BMW PGA Championship by 1 shot after 3rd round

Scott Jamieson confirmed that he his on his way back to something like his best form after recovering from a terrible start to his second round to claim a share of the halfway lead in the BMW PGA Championship.

He balanced the books with a birdie at 8 and then kicked on with back-to-back red numbers at 11 and 12.

At the top, Francesco Molinari produced a birdie-birdie finish to share the lead with Scott Jamieson and Thomas Pieters heading into the weekend.

The South African added a 70 to rounds of 68 and 71 and is right in contention to challenge for an eighth European Tour title.

The golf was also briefly halted at 11am local time as players and spectators observed a minute's silence for the victims. Last week: Alvaro Quiros won the Rocco Forte Open. This is the pinnacle of my season.

The 44-year-old, who has twice finished runner-up in the European Tour's £5.4million flagship event, needed just 23 putts and had a scrambling percentage of 95, prompting some high praise from caddie Billy Foster.

'Almost your feel for a great round has somewhat left you by that point, so it was a matter of digging in and having another good day.

"My ball was plugged in a bunker on the third and I thought it would take a good shot to get it on the green".


The bad news was his bogey six on the final hole after making birdie on the 16th and 17th.

"The older you get and the more experience you get, you learn to grind out days like this". "Yeah, I got a lot of heat on social media for that, but if that's their opinion, fine". It's a tough stretch of the golf course, the first three holes, especially the way the wind was blowing today. "Even with a wedge you have to play for a couple of bounces and then check". "I know deep down the ball wasn't quite where it should be and I wouldn't be able to live with myself".

He may not be the longest hitter on the tour but Ramsay's accuracy is one of his main attributes and the West Course is a nice fit for him. "I haven't seen a single spike mark". "The greens are absolutely as pure as you can find. I'd hit one green".

But he is up against it after a 76, four-over par, which included a solitary birdie. I'm sick of people talking about it and I'm sick of listening to it to be honest. It was pathetic, it really was. My game's in shape. The work has been carried out over all but a few weeks of the last twelve months."Now I'm in a position to do so"."I'm fairly happy".

However, he was hardly celebrating after working out that he took 34 putts.

I was lucky enough to be given a first-hand experience on the eve of the tournament, playing in the pro-am event. "They are tough holes at the start". Something is not right, I'm obviously doing something different.

Olympic champion Justin Rose scored an eagle on the par five 18th to salvage his round and finish two over.
