Round 1, Round 2, Round 4


Maximilian Kieffer leads the Oman Open by one stroke as the third round at Al Mouj Golf was suspended due to darkness.

Following significant delays after a sandstorm and high winds on Friday afternoon, the third round began at 15:20 local time, with Kieffer sharing the halfway lead with Joachim B. Hansen on five under par.

Kieffer, who teed off at 17:10, parred the first three holes, before play was suspended, to finish the day one stroke ahead of Gaganjeet Bhullar, Hansen, who birdied the third hole after a double bogey on the second, and Brandon Stone.

Sweden’s Peter Hanson is three under par through the first seven holes of his third round, moving to a share of fifth place with Benjamin Hebert, Hugo Leon, Hideto Tanihara and Fabrizio Zanotti on three under.

Frenchman Clemént Sordet, who won the European Challenge Tour Grand Final on this golf course in 2017 sits in tenth place on two under par alongside compatriot, and 2014 Ryder Cup player, Victor Dubuisson, England’s David Horsey, Scotland’s Scott Jamieson and Sebastian Soderberg of Sweden.

Jorge Campillo made the biggest move on the leaderboard on Saturday afternoon – four under par through eight holes, to move up to a share of 15th on one under.

The third round of the Oman Open will resume at 07:15 on Sunday morning, with the final round commencing no sooner than 30 minutes after its completion. There will be a two-tee start with no redraw after the third round.
