Foster flourishes as Lawrie fades
Peter Lawrie slipped a disappointing eight shots off the pace as England’s Mark Foster carved out a two-shot lead entering the final round of the BMW International Open in in Munich.
The 35-year old Englishman shot a 66 to lead in 14 under as Lawrie struggled to a one over 73 that relegated him to tied 23rd on six under.
The Dubliner was just three shots off the lead starting the day but he lacked the sharpness of the first two days and followed a birdie at the first with bogeys at the fifth, 10th and 17th before repairing some of the damage with a birdie at the last.
Laid-back Lawrie on the march in Munich
Peter Lawrie has been catching up with his sleep and closing in on the leaders in the BMW International Open in Munich.
The Dubliner joked that grinding on tour feels like a holiday compared to his hectic domestic life after his wife Philippa gave birth to their first son and the couple’s fourth child just last month.
But it will all work this weekend after a second round 68 left him just three strokes adrift of leaders Henrik Stenson and George Coetzee on seven under par.
