Wallace holds Italian Open lead

Wallace holds Italian Open lead”

A year on from winning the Alps Tour Grand Final to claim a history-making sixth victory on the European satellite tour, the Moor Park Golf Club professional is now taking a two-shot lead into the final round of the Italian Open as he seeks a stunning wire-to-wire triumph.

Tyrrell Hatton - a victor at last week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship - and home favourite Francesco Molinari, the defending champion, signed for 65 and 66 respectively and represent Wallace's closest challengers.

Hatton, celebrating his 26th birthday, fared even better than Molinari on the front nine with six birdies, including four in a row from the fourth.

Fleetwood dropped his only shot of the day at the 12th, but he responded with four birdies over the next five holes to reach 13 under par, just four strokes adrift of the leader.

Holder Francesco Molinari of Italy and Tyrrell Hatton were two shots back in a tie for second while Tommy Fleetwood posted an eight-under-par 63 to get to 13 under in a tie for sixth place.

The only blemish of the Open de Portugal champion's round was to come with a bogey four at seven, but that shot was retrieved at the par five ninth to regain the outright lead after being pegged back into a three-way tie for top shot.

His back nine was less spectacular but another birdie at the 14th saw him sign for a 65.

There are number of high-profile players still in contention ahead of the final day at Golf Club Milano, including South African George Coetzee, who is three shots off the lead on 14-under alongside Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand.

The Englishman began his round with a birdie at the long first and tapped in for another at the fifth before missing a par at the short seventh.

But the 27-year-old clipped a smooth nine-iron to five feet and held his composure to knock in the par-saving putt to ensure he would sleep on a two-shot advantage over a high-quality field.
