Higgo out front in Canary Islands

South African is seeking his second win in three weeks

Garrick Higgo carded four closing birdies in a round of 64 to continue his remarkable run of form and take a two shot lead into the final round of the 2021 Canary Islands Championship.

The South African is seeking his third European Tour title - and second in three weeks - after winning the opening event of the Canary Islands Swing, the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open, on the back of a top five at the Austrian Golf Open.
"I was just trying to stay patient, because I'm hitting good putts. I'm hitting the ball a lot better than I have the last few weeks, so I'm giving myself a lot more chances," said Higgo.
"It's hard to stay patient when you've got a lot of putts. That shot on 15 turned it around a little bit."
A top ten at the Tenerife Open followed and on day three of the second week at Golf Costa Adeje the 21-year-old moved to twenty-under-par, taking his total score in eleven rounds on the Canary Islands to an incredible sixty-one under par.

England's Richard Mansell is his closest challenger at eighteen-under-par after a seven-under 64 of his own, one ahead of Scot Calum Hill who signed for a 66.
Finland's Tapio Pulkkanen matched the course record with a ten-under-par 61 to sit alongside Australian Maverick Antcliff and England's Andrew Johnston at fifteen-under-par and five shots off the lead.
