Finn Tappio Pulkkanen and American Johannes Veerman, currently in a four-way tie for the lead, set the clubhouse target of 6-under 64 at the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain.

“I had a pretty slow start, bogey-bogey, and I thought maybe this isn’t so good a day, but I made two more birdies coming in to make the turn and then I just lit it up on the back nine – putting really hot and hitting it really good,” said Pulkkanen.

Play was suspended for two hours in the morning at the Lakes Course due to thunderstorms and heavy rain.

“I just hit it solid and made some putts,” said Pulkkanen. “I think the greens softened up a lot after the rain so that made it easier. The greens on Tuesday were quite tough and then they were slower after the rain.

“The rough was wet so you want to be on the fairway but my driving was really good so I didn’t need to worry about the rough and that helped a lot.”

South Africa’s Hennie Du Plessie and India’s SSP Chawrasia are also tied at 6-under with two holes left to play on Friday morning.

37 other players will also have to complete their rounds.

Englishman Jack Senior and Scotsman David Law signed for 65s for a share of second place alongside Italy’s Guido Migliozzi and Denmark’s Rasmus Højgaard who are among those yet to finish.
