Jordan Smith’s solitary European Tour win came on German soil in 2017 but he will look to repeat the feat as he takes a one-shot lead into the final round of the BMW International Open in Munich.

However, the Englishman faces serious competition from compatriots Matthew Fitzpatrick and Matt Wallace, respectively one and two strokes behind his 13-under total at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried.

Smith, winner of the European Open in Hamburg two years ago, carded a bogey-free 66 to assume top spot from overnight leader Martin Kaymer after the home favourite could manage only a disappointing three-over 75 to drop to eight under.

“I like Germany. I missed my first cut (of the season) in Denmark a couple of weeks ago but the game was still looking good for that week,” Smith told europeantour.com.


“It’s been feeling good for a long while so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”

Fitzpatrick, whose record of winning in each of the last four seasons is only matched by Alex Noren, shot a third-round 65 to move into joint second with Austrian Matthias Schwab.

“I’ve played well so far this year. I want to win as many tournaments as I can this year,” said the Yorkshireman.

“If I’m putting myself in position where I’m a few behind on Saturday, it gives me the green light to go at it.

“If I was leading I’d probably hold back a little bit. Today allowed me to be a little more aggressive.”

Defending champion Wallace’s four-under 68 lifted him to 11 under and well within striking distance despite some scrappy play.

“That wasn’t pretty today,” he said.

“I wasn’t playing from the fairway a lot but I shot better than I did yesterday so it’s a funny game. It’s a good position, we’re in contention.

“I played great yesterday so I need to do something similar to that and hole the putts.”
