Smith claims 1st lead

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Jor­dan Smith shot a bo­gey-free 5-un­der 67 in the third round to take a two-stroke lead at 12 un­der in the Euro­pean Open on Sat­ur­day at Ham­burg, Ger­many. The 24-yearold English­man had five birdies to add to his rounds of 70 and 67 as he claimed the lead for the first time at a Euro­pean Tour event. De­fend­ing cham­pion Alexan­der Levy and Jens Fahrbring of Swe­den were two shots be­hind af­ter rounds of 69 and 70, re­spec­tively. Jo­han Ed­fors, Adrian Otaegui, Richard Sterne, Ryan McCarthy, Ju­lian Suri and overnight leader Ash­ley Ch­esters were tied for fourth at 9 un­der. Home fa­vorite Mar­cel Siem aced the par-3 17th hole to win a Porsche car on his 400th Euro­pean Tour ap­pear­ance. Pep An­gles (Cen­tral Arkansas) did not make the cut.
