Cursed in Foxford and Puerto Rico

Some curses seem harder to break than others, whether you're a Mayo footballer chasing an All-Ireland title or a Puerto Rico champion sentenced to PGA Tour doom

Paul Dunne will be looking for early birdies heading into the final round if he’s to have a chance of victory delight in the Made in Denmark tournament.

Dunne posted a second straight round of 70 to move into a share of eighth place on five-under par after the third day of the event played in bright but very cold conditions on the Himmerland course near Aalborg.  Indeed, it got so cold, many of the spectators seated around the greens were wrapped in blankets.

Dunne’s ‘moving day’ round was a little cold itself for a time with the Irishman dropping shots at his second and seventh holes before picking up three gains on his closing 10 holes.

The Greystones golfer trails just four shots behind Austrian giant, Bernd Wiesberger who posted a round of 67 to lead by a shot at nine-under par.

Wiesberger had led by two over the latter stages of his round but opened the door slightly to his rivals when he three-putted the last.

Scotland’s Robert ‘Bobby’ MacIntyre is one of those chasing glory after he signed for a 68 to be lying second in his first event since sharing second place at last fortnight’s British Masters.

“I am really pleased with my round as I played well out there today,” said the 22-year old Scot.

“My caddy and I got a couple of winds wrong out there but aside, we will continue to keeping doing what we are doing.

“My short-game is sharp while I’m continuing to hole some good birdies putts.”

With plenty of Irish interest at the event, Mt. Juliet’s Gavin Moynihan, who had dug deep in shooting a second day 68 to make the Danish halfway cut, added a third round 70 to end the day at one-under.

While Michael Hoey was at level par for his round before taking a final hole triple-bogey ‘7’ in a score of 74 to slump to two-over par and into a T56th position.
