“I find the front nine is probably tougher, maybe – a couple less chances anyway,” said Jordan.

“I wasn’t doing too much wrong, I just couldn’t get up and down, couldn’t hit fairways great, it just wasn’t quite happening – but I knew I wasn’t that far off. I just kept going and fortunately enough it all started to click.

“It was stressful. How can it not be? It’s just hard work, hard grind the whole time. The simple shots are really tough. So it was stressful but it’s always very rewarding when you do well.”

Poland’s Adrian Meronk similarly had to contend with five bogeys interspersed with five birdies for a 72 for his share of the lead at 8-under.

“I’m very pleased to be honest,” said Meronk. “It was super tough. I knew it was going to be tough, it was a grinding day but I’m very satisfied with the result and looking forward to tomorrow.

“You have to stay patient. You’re going to hit some bad shots, some really bad shots, and you just have to accept it and stay patient. I knew I was going to make some bogeys but I just kept going, kept hitting good shots and I’m glad I did.

“I’m excited, it’s going to be a great day. Let’s have some fun.”

Finn Kalle Samooja had an almost perfect round with eight birdies but unfortunately double bogeyed the par-4 2nd for a 66 to move into solo third place at 7-under.

Pablo Larrazábal, who held the 36-hole lead, fired just two birdies to offset the five bogeys he made on the back nine and closed with a 75 and a share of fourth place at 6-under.

Tied alongside him are fellow Spaniard Adrian Otaegui who closed with a 70 and South African Wilco Nienaber who carded a 74.
