The 38 year old Swedish golfer Robert Karlsson eclipsed Paul McGinley yesterday at the PGA Golf Championship to go 4 shots clear on 11 uner par, heading into the final round today at Wentworth.
Paul McGinley had a disastrous start as he chose an iron to tee off from the 1st only to find sand. He struggled throughout the day with the gusty wind that plagued the course and at times made a mockery of club selection.
McGinley finished round three with a very poor 79 to sink to joint fourth on 6 under par with Argentina’s Daniel Vancsik and Indian Jyoti Randhawa.
Miguel Angel Jimenez played a great round yesterday with a par 72 to finish joint second on 7 under with Oliver Wilson.
Only three golfers managed to go round Wenworth yesterday under 70 – Argentina’s Rafa Echenique, who is tied for seventh, Randhawa and England’s Oliver Fisher. As a result, Karlsson is the clear favourite for victory according to golf tournament betting.
