EPD Tour — Rory McNamara shot a six under 65 and Richard Bridges a 70 to leave them seven shots off the pace entering the final round of the St Pölten Pro Golf Tour 2016 in Austria.

Headfort's McNamara, a winner earlier this season, made seven birdies in 10 holes in the middle of his round to move up 55 spots to tied 15th with Bridges, who had four birdies, one double bogey and one bogey in his 70.


The Irish pair are on six under par, seven behind Germany's Julian Kunzenbacher, who added a 63 to his opening 66 to lead by one stroke on 13 under from Belgium's Christopher Mivis. 

The cut fell at four under par 138 which left Ciaran Boggan (75-68/143), Lucan's Richard O'Donovan(68/76 144) and Northern Ireland's Chris Carroll (76-70/146) out of the money.
