UK’s Horsey Takes 2-Stroke Lead in Denmark
Here’s the trick at the Made in Denmark tournament. Shoot a 64, take the lead.
David Horsey shot a 64 on Saturday to take a 2-stroke lead into the final round on Sunday. He’s at 14-under, two strokes ahead of American Julian Suri.
“I really like this golf course, something about it suits my eye so I come in here with good vibes again and the atmosphere coming up 16 is something else, it must be like walking out in a football stadium with 70,000 people cheering for you. I actually said to my caddie, I think I was more nervous on that putt on 16 than I was to win the tournament two years ago,” Horsey said. “Leading by two so I’ll just focus on myself and go out and play the same sort of golf as I have today. It would be nice to add another Made In Denmark trophy to the cabinet so we’ll see what we can do.”
The real story of the day is who’s tied for third, three strokes off the lead.
Yes, it’s American John Daly, who is 3 strokes off the lead at 11-under. He shot a 65 on Saturday after stroking four birdies on the front nine. He had just one blemish on his card a bogey on No. 16, which he also bogeyed on Friday.
Daly has not won a non-Champions event since 2004. he’s currently 51. His only regular season Euro Tour win was the 2001 BMW International Open. His 65 was his lowest round on the European Tour since 2008 when he fired a 62 at the Hong Kong Open.
