Jamieson leads rain delayed ISPS Handa Championship

Scot leads by one after five holes of third round

Scott Jamieson remained at the top of the leaderboard after playing just five holes of his third round at the weather-affected ISPS Handa Championship in Spain, where Canadian Aaron Cockerill holed an eagle putt to close out a stunning 62 and move within one shot of the summit just moments before the final klaxon sounded.

Play was delayed for a total of four hours and 48 minutes on day three at Infinitum as storms passed continually through the Tarragona region, and Jamieson - the leader by two strokes heading into the weekend - only teed off his third round at 5:33pm local time.
The 38-year-old bogeyed the first but picked that shot back up with a birdie at the third, and he reached the sixth green in level par before play was called to a halt one final time at 6:58pm as the thunder began to rattle once again. Jamieson ended the day as he started it, on an eleven-under total heading into Sunday.
“It was a nice start to the day to see Rangers win alright, but it was a kind of frustrating day then when you’re starting and stopping like that, but what can you do," said Jamieson.
Cockerill was unperturbed by the delays, however, and the 30-year-old - who came through Qualifying School Final Stage at this venue in 2019 - made the only eagle of the day at the 18th to add to six birdies as he signed for an eight-under third round to move to a ten-under-par total.
“It was an awesome day, I played really well the whole day. I got into a bit of trouble on 15 and 16 but was able to save par but other than that I made a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens, made a lot of putts – awesome day," said the Canadian.
Home favourite Pablo Larrazábal was one of eight players tied for third place on eight-under-par - all eight of them yet to finish their third rounds - after the six-time DP World Tour winner had opened with four successive birdies. He dropped a shot at the fifth and managed to make the turn in three-under before the evening storms moved in to force the players off the course one final time.
“Before the first suspension I made a good birdie at the first and then I turned on the motorcycle, four birdies in a row, then it quietened down a bit with three silly putts on the fifth but I continued to play well," said Larrazábal.
“It will be a long day tomorrow and let's see if we can finish the third round in good shape to get close and be ready for a long day, but a day that can be beautiful.”
