Burmester in touch ahead of final Irish Open round

Aaron Rai stayed on course for a second European Tour victory as a 67 handed him a one shot lead heading into the final day of the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The Englishman held a share of the lead after rounds one and two at Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort but managed to break free at eight under after 54 holes, one clear of Australian Maverick Antcliff.

South African Dean Burmester, Thai Jazz Janewattananond and Swede Oscar Lengden were at six under, a shot clear of Australian Lucas Herbert and England’s Toby Tree.

Burmester made it a three way tie with a birdie on the first when round three got underway, and after his opening gain, he made 10 pars in a row but birdied the 12th before dropping a shot on the 16th and picking it back up on the last.
