Horsey reined in in Denmark

STYAL’S David Horsey will take a narrow advantage into the final round of the Made in Denmark tomorrow, clinging on atop the leaderboard after being reeled in by Australian Terry Pilkadaris.

Horsey made a brilliant start with three birdies and an eagle in the first six holes, stretching his lead to seven shots. However, a mixed back nine meant he ultimately signed for a three under par 68, allowing Pilkadaris to claw his way back into contention with a superb 65.

English pair Chris Paisley (66) and John Parry (69) are four shots off Horsey’s lead on 11 under, while Søren Kjeldsen and Mads Søggard are the best placed Danes, both on eight under par after rounds of 68 and 69 respectively.

Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort was jumping once again, with nearly 23,000 spectators – 1,700 more than in the third round last year – creating an electric atmosphere.

Horsey said: “I got off to a great start so I was obviously very pleased with that. There were a few tough holes in the middle that I didn’t tackle that well, and obviously it was disappointing to bogey the last. It’s tricky, though, as there’s a cross-wind out there. I maybe didn’t hit it quite close enough with my wedges in the middle of the back nine, but I’m still in a great position tomorrow. I didn’t have a clue that I was seven clear. There aren’t that many leaderboards out there, and anyway I was just trying to focus on myself. You can’t win a tournament on a Saturday so I was just trying to play my own game and get as far ahead as I could. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
