He started the day with a two shot lead and increased it to three after making the turn in 33 but two bogeys at the start of his back nine slowed his momentum and he parred his final four holes.

“It was a solid bad day I guess you’d say but in some ways frustrating. I felt like I could have put some real distance between myself and the field and didn’t do that.”

“I want to get to 20 under as a personal goal. So if I can do that, someone’s got to come catch me and if they do, good luck to them.

“To win the Irish Open would be really cool, whether it’s wire to wire or not. I think it would be a really cool one to put on your resumé that you’ve won the Irish Open.”

Herbert could become the second wire to wire winner on this year’s Race to Dubai following Bernd Wiesberger at the Made in Himmerland event in May.

Johannes Veerman signed for a 67 and takes second place having produced an eagle at the par5 5th as well as five birdies and two bogeys.

Victory on Sunday would make Veerman the second American since 1972 to win on the European Tour on the 4th of July following Bob Byman at the 1982 Scandinavian Enterprise Open.

Justin Harding lies two shots further back after firing a 65, the lowest round of the day by two shots.
