TURIN, Italy, June 11 (UPI) -- Britain's Robert Rock shot another 68 Saturday to hold on to the lead at the Italian Open.
Rock was four-under 68 for the second day in a row and finished two shots ahead of six other contenders heading into Sunday's final round at the Royal Park I Roveri course in Turin, Italy.
Rock knows all about second place. He is a three-time runner-up on the European Tour and is vying for his first tour victory.
Rock, who is 16-under 200 for the tournament, bogeyed the fourth hole Saturday but offset it with five birdies.
"I putted well again today. My swing came and went during the round, but came back on the 16th tee, which was very welcome," said Rock, who had 17 putts in the round and hit 13 greens in regulation. "It makes the game so much more fun, when you putt great."
Niklas Fasath had a sharp round of 64 and a share of second place despite a bogey and four pars on the final five holes.
