ZANDVOORT, Netherlands, Aug. 25 (UPI) --
Three players are tied for the lead through 54 holes of the European Tour’s KLM Open at Zandvoort, Netherlands.
The trio includes second-round leader David Carter, Ross Fisher and Steven Alker.
Carter bogeyed the last hole to finish the third round with a 1-over-par 71, while Fisher shot 2-under 68 and Alker shot 1-under 69. All three stand at 9-under 201.
"It was a bit nerve-wracking for a period with all the attention and the wind was in a totally different direction,” Carter said.
"I hit a couple of loose shots, but overall I'm pleased with the day and if I can get a few putts to drop I will be OK (Sunday),” Alker said.
David Higgins (68), Thomas Levet (68), Phillip Price (67) and Joost Luiten (71) are tied for fourth at 7-under 203, with a total of 21 players within four strokes of the leaders.
