Viktor Hovland is a round away from the first Norwegian winner of the European tour after opening a three-stroke lead in the third round of the BMW International Open on Saturday.
Five birdies on the back nine times helped Hovland record the best round of the day with an 8 under 64 as he moved to 17 under for the tournament.
“I’m just trying to stay within myself. I’m looking at rankings to see where I’m, but instead of trying to force things, I’m just telling myself at the beginning of the day to just take control of my own game, said Hovland. said.
“If I don’t waste shots here and there, I just play smart, trust that I’m doing the right things, I think I’ll really have a good chance tomorrow.
Hovland already has two U.S. PGA Tour titles from the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December and the Puerto Rico Open in February 2020.
