NORTH BERWICK – Bernd Wiesberger broke two strokes clear of his nearest rival in the third round of the Scottish Open in North Berwick on Saturday.
After a favourable ruling granting him line-of-sight relief from a TV booth at the final hole, Wiesberger hoisted his approach shot over a tree to four feet for an unlikely closing birdie.
He carded six-under-par 65, his only blemish a three-putt bogey at the penultimate hole at the Renaissance Club.
In search of his sixth European Tour, the Austrian posted a 20-under 193 total with one round remaining.
South African Erik van Rooyen sank a long birdie putt at the 17th hole and shot 67 to hold second place on 18 under.
