Brendan McCarroll shot the perfect round, flawless 66 to be in good position to defend his title. Tie with him, Martin Wiegele, who was the last Autrian player to lift the great Gösser Glass Trophy in 2008.

The 2013 vintage in Maria Lankowitz tastes a little like the 2012 one. Branden McCarroll is leading over an Austrian player. Last year, Jürgen Maurer failed to disturb the 27 year old man from Northern Ireland. This year, he will face the experimented Martin Wiegele, Gôsser flagship player.

But there are two other men who will chase the leaders, respectively 3 and 4 shots back.. Spain’s Jesus Legarrea, in great form so far during this season. Legarrea played in the last group in France 3 weeks ago and did not manage to keep his level of game during last round. This experience will help him tomorrow to deal with the pressure. And finally, a challenger to watch out, Rhys Enoch from Wales, whose talent already seduce Chubby Chandler. Enoch has already been leading in opening season tournament in Egypt.
