Wiesberger runs away with the lead at the Ballantine’s

AFP, SEOUL

Bernd Wiesberger was within a round of claiming his maiden European Tour victory after running away with the lead at the Ballantine’s Championship yesterday.

He fired a second successive seven-under 65 to take a stranglehold on the US$2.9 million tournament at Blackstone Golf Club in Icheon, South Korea.

His three-round total of 202, 14-under, stretched his overnight lead to five shots over Australia’s Marcus Fraser, who struggled to cling on to his playing partner’s coat tails with a 69.

A shot further back were England’s Oliver Fisher (67) and Chile’s Felipe Aguilar, who carded a four-under 68.
