Warren and Dredge lead
Marc Warren and Bradley Dredge share the lead of the European Tour’s Made in Denmark in blustery Aalborg.
Warren carded an impressive five under 66 to surge up the leaderborad while Dredge slumped to post a two over 73, squandering his four stroke overnight lead.
The rounds see the duo finish day three on six under for the tournament, three shots ahead of the nearest rival.
“Even driving here we could see the wind was a lot stronger than the first two days so we knew it was going to be a battle today,” Warren told Sky Sports.
“Obviously Bradley was well ahead of me and the rest of the field and to be honest I was hoping it was going to be tougher because if it was easier he could maybe have the chance to pull away.
The Scot sank four birdies on the front nine along with two bogeys. Another bogey on the 12th would see Warren arrive at the 13th tee one under for the round. However, a string of four birdies over the last six holes saw him climb to the top spot.
“Overall I am absolutely delighted,” he added.
“I think 66 today, I probably couldn’t have hoped for that before I started. I started off and felt a wee bit of out of synch the first couple of holes, then hit a really nice second shot into the third and from then on just played really solid golf.”
Meanwhile Dredge, who is still tied for the lead courtesy of his opening round 66, had a disastrous round that included four bogeys and two birdies.
England’s Simon Wakefield and Northern Irishman Gareth Maybin are three shots back after carding 72 and 68 respectively.
Meanwhile, Michael Hoey was forced to withdraw from the tournament after he missed his tee-off time.
After some average golf left him four over par, the Northern Irishman believed he had missed the cut and he flew home on Friday. However, James Heath, part of the last group, holed a bogey putt that changed the cut from three to four over.
Upon having heard this news, Hoey came back to Denmark to play but his clubs had been mislaid during the transit and he was club-less when is 7:40am tee off time came along.
To add insult to injury, Hoey then missed his flight home and was forced to wait hours at the airport.
