Wallace in control at St Andrews

Englishman threeshots clear at Scottish Championship presented by AXA

Matt Wallace carded a brilliant bogey free round of 66 to open up a three shot lead heading into the final round of the Scottish Championship presented by AXA.

The Englishman is chasing a fifth European Tour title and his first since the 2018 Made in Denmark, and he edged closer to that target after recording an eagle and four birdies – including two in his last two holes - to get to 18 under par, three ahead of nearest challenger and countryman Garrick Porteous.
Porteous also signed for a round of 66 at Fairmont St Andrews as he sets his sight on a first European Tour title, after earning his card for the 2020 season at Qualifying School.
“I enjoyed it a lot. Especially at the end there to finish the way I did was really nice. It’s probably the best I’ve ever handled myself. I missed a few putts early on, I didn’t really get much going. I holed a nice one on four and then a good two on that short driveable hole but then nothing really happened. Sometimes I felt like I wanted to push on but I stayed really patient and it showed there by the end. " said Wallace after his round.

Spaniard Adrian Otaegui had a share of the overnight lead with Wallace and he sits in third place at 14 under par after a round of 70. American Sean Crocker is a shot further back, with English pair Chris Paisley and Eddie Pepperell then at 12 under par alongside Northern Ireland’s Jonathan Caldwell.
