JOHANNESBURG – South Africa’s Erik van Rooyen fired a third-round four-under 67 to hold second position two shots behind Austrian Bernd Wiesberger who leads on 20-under at The Renaissance Club, in North Berwick, at the Scottish Open on Sunday.
Wiesberger was tied for the lead with Van Rooyen at the start of the day, and went on to record a six-under round of 66 to forge ahead.
Still searching for his maiden European Tour win, Van Rooyen has already notched up two runner-up finishes this season and remains in an excellent position to take the next step in his career.
"I've got a lot of experience now," he said. "There's 18 holes to go, a lot of guys that can still play well. We've seen some low scores these three days, 61s, 62s, you name it. Bernd and I are both playing well but there's a lot of guys who can still do it.
"Tomorrow I'll go hit one shot at a time and make as many birdies as I can.”
