Norwegian Viktor hovland is the new leader of the BMW International Open of the European Circuit, which takes place at the Golf Club of Munich, after signing a card of 64 strokes (-8) that places him first with 199 (-17), in a third day in which the Spanish Jorge Campillo signed a 67 (-5) to be, with -14, three from the head.
In the absence of a day for the conclusion of the contest, Hovland, who had to withdraw from the recent US Open due to the sand that entered his eye after a shot from the bunker at a hole in Torrey Pines, has the opportunity to make history by becoming the first Norwegian to win a European tour title.
The Nordic, number 14 of the world, snatched the first place of the general classification to the Irish Niall Kearney, after giving a card with 8 birdies without failures.
Jorge Campillo, who is looking for his third continental title (after Hassan of Morocco and Qatar Masters), made six birdies penalized by a ‘bogey that kept him in second position as the Norwegian’s main threat.
Of the rest of the Spanish golfers, they managed to beat the course this Saturday: Sergio García with 68 (-4), Alejandro Cañizares with 70 (-2) and Sebastián García Rodríguez with 71 (-1).
