Bjerregaard triumphs in Portugal

24 September 2017

Lucas Bjerregaard will take a one-shot lead into the final round at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course as he goes in search of a first European Tour title at the Portugal Masters.

Pepperell has never before had back-to-back top-five finishes on Tour, which have sent him climbing to 75th in the rankings.

"I'm feeling good", Bertasio said. "I'm in a place where I'm still building confidence, but it feels good".

Bjerregaard began the day a shot clear and picked up four shots by the eighth hole, with a bogey at nine doing little to check his momentum at the turn, with birdies at 10 and 11 putting him right back in command. It also prevented challengers-most notably Warren and three-time European Tour victor George Coetzee-from making a charge.

Bjerregaard birdied Nos. 15 and 17 to end with a comfortable lead over Warren.

Goetzee had made three birdies on his round and was within three strokes before making a triple-bogey 7 on the last hole to fall to T-7.

With his card for next season virtually assured, the 26-year-old needs to keep the strong results coming if he is to fulfil an aim of a top-60 finish, earning an entry to the season climax in Dubai.

"I felt pretty confident". "It's been a rough year for me so to be in contention again feels really good".

Bjerregaard's win was a popular one among his close friends.
