Victor Riu and Jeong Weon Ko in ambush before the last tour

Although he was slightly behind, Victor Riu remains in contact with the leaders before the last lap. Jeong Weon Ko continues his comeback by entering the top 5.

An eagle and a birdie to boot, Victor Riu was he going to sign a new exceptional card like his 63 (-9) the day before? Unfortunately, the Parisian did not manage to follow up and had to settle for a 69 (-3) with two bogeys and two birdies on the rest of his course.

He still remains relatively close to the leading duo made up of the Germans Marc Hammer and Velten Meyer installed at the controls with three lengths ahead of Victor Riu.

Author of a fantastic 62 (-10) with five birdies and an eagle on the last eight holes, the Irishman John Murphy took the third step of the provisional podium.

Jeong Weon Ko goes back

With three pars and a bogey, Jeong Weon Ko had a sluggish start to the third round. But the Bussy player then managed to find the right settings, recording six birdies over the next 14 holes to return a solid 67 (-5). The representative of the Bussy-Guermantes golf course is therefore continuing his progress made the day before with a 64. He is now in 5th place, 4 strokes behind the leaders.

Three other tricolors in the top 20

They are closely followed by several other tricolors. Edgar Catherine (-13, 12th) can hope for a second top 10 this season after his fifth place in the Spain Challenge last May. Ugo Coussaud and Robin Sciot-Siegrist (-12, 16th) are also well placed one shot behind.

Felix Mory and Pierre Pineau (-11, 21st) are at the gates of the top 20. David Ravetto, Mathieu Decottignies-Lafon (-6, 47ths) and Paul Margolis (-5, 57th) are a bit distant.
