KLM Open: Slattery, Cabrera-Bello tied

Published on

ZANDVOORT, Netherlands (AP) — Lee Slattery and Rafa Cabrera-Bello both shot a 7-under 63 Saturday to take the joint lead after the third round of the KLM Open on a low scoring day.

Cabrera-Bello was on track for a spectacular round after making six birdies and an eagle on the front nine, along with only his third bogey of the tournament, but the Spaniard could only manage a string of nine pars coming home.

Slattery, who won last week's Russian Open, also shot six birdies, an eagle and a bogey in his round as he sought his second consecutive European Tour victory. They had a 16-under total of 194, one shot ahead of Paul Lawrie, who was third after a 63.

Thomas Pieters was another shot back after a 62.

Wade Ormsby of Australia followed a double-bogey six on the 10th with a hole in one on the 169-yard 11th on his way to a 68 that left him tied for fifth with Mikko Ilonen and Morten Orum Madsen at 13 under.
