“Walking down the last, I was nine-under and had a chance to go to ten. I haven’t shot ten in a professional event yet, so that was a nice bonus. It’s just going with the flow and things worked out very well today – not thinking too much and just keep doing what I’m doing.

“I had a couple of chances out there and just took the last five quite nicely. I played quite solid – nothing out of the ordinary. I hit a lot of shots quite close and obviously coming in, finishing off with five birdies is a bonus but it was a good day out there today. I kept controlling my golf ball and took the chances when I had to take them.”

The Austrian, whose previous low round was 63, made 11 birdies – including five in a row to end his round – to sign for a ten under par 61. He tops the leader board going into the weekend at the third Rolex Series event of the season at 14 under par alongside Englishman Lee Slattery and South Africa’s Erik van Rooyen, who carded matching rounds of 64.


“I feel like all the hard work I’ve put in over the winter is starting to pay off now and just trying to finish the season off strong,” said Slattery. “A lot of Rolex Series Events to play and I feel I need to push this finish part of the season.

“I didn’t play too much in the early part of the year which is different for me. Spent more time with the family. Got a young family and felt like it was important to spend more time with them this winter. Did a lot of gym work at home and I feel like the game is starting to come together a little bit.”

Wiesberger, who returned from a wrist injury at the end of 2018, won his fifth European Tour title at Made in Denmark in May and was second at last week’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson and Nino Bertasio of Italy are two shots behind the leading trio.

“It was the same as yesterday, six birdies and no bogeys, so that’s always pleasing when you play 36 holes without dropping a shot,” said Stenson. “I’m just trying to keep up with the guys at the top of the leaderboard, and so far I’m pleased with the way I’ve played. A lot of good tee shots. A lot of good approaches and solid putting on the greens, even though I let one or two good chances slip by here on the back nine, I’m still pleased where I’m positioned after two rounds.”

Justin Thomas, making his Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open debut this week, shares sixth on 11 under par with Italian pair Lorenzo Gagli and two-time winner in 2019 Guido Migliozzi, Finn Kalle Samooja and Adrian Otaegui of Spain.

Calum Hill is the leading Scotsman on ten under par alongside ten others, including Ryder Cup players Matt Fitzpatrick, Edoardo Molinari, Thomas Pieters and Ian Poulter.

More than one trophy will be up for grabs over the weekend, as the ground-breaking inaugural EDGA Scottish Open takes place at The Renaissance Club.


Ten golfers from the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability will compete in the 36-hole EDGA Scottish Open, teeing off approximately two hours before the first tee in the final two rounds of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open.
