Andrew Dodt Leads By One at BMW PGA After 54 Holes

Australia’s Andrew Dodt fired a 4-under 68 on Saturday at Wentworth to get to 8-under at the BMW PGA Championship. The Aussie will take a one-stroke lead into Sunday’s final round .

 
South Africa’s Branden Grace is one back of Dodt, and alone in second at 7-under, following a third-round 2-under 70.

Lee Westwood (72) and 54-hole co-leader Francesco Molinari (74) are three shots back at 5-under, tied for third.

Sweden’s Henrik Stenson posted a 1-over 73 to drop a shot, but the Open Champion is still just four back of the lead at 4-under. He is tied for fifth with Ireland’s Shane Lowry and Japan’s Hideto Tanihara.

The two other 54-hole co-leaders, Belgium’s Thomas Pieters and Scott Jamieson of Scotland, were awful on Saturday, shooting 78 and 76, respectively, to drop out of contention.


Putt of the Day

Thomas Pieters carded a 6-over 78 on Saturday to drop out of contention. But his round could have been worse if not for this long bomb putt for birdie.
