Bech soared on home soil
Bech is leading but one of the most amazing round was posted to day by his fellow countryman, Sebastian Garcia. He had a slow start though dropping 3 shots on the first two holes then the Spaniard had an incredible 8 birdie series from the third to the 10th and he missed a short putt for birdie on the 11th to eventually land on earth after a journey in golfers’ paradise. He signed for a 67 card with 10 birdies to be third on his own with -6 total.
Bech had one birdie less with 9 and he only dropped one shot to be in contention for final round. His one and only win was on home soil in 2013. Van Driel holed 9 birdies as well but had 2 bogeys and will be in the last group tomorrow to go for a back-to-back victory on Alps Tour.
The cut felt at +1 and 3 players in Alps Tour top 6 did not make it, England’s Harry Casey, Italy’s Andrea Maestroni and France’s Matthieu Pavon. Once again the ranking will swing at the end of a tournament.
