Peter Lawrie had to wait until the 18th to notch just his second birdie of a disappointing 73 in Munich. Credit: www.golffile.iePeter 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.
