The PGA of Germany’s Dennis Küpper along with Denis Lohrmann and Benjamin Frenzel, moved to the top of the leaderboard following Round 03 of the PGAs of Europe International Team Championship at Costa Navarino in Greece.
Having produced an opening round of Level Par (142), the Germans started their ITC challenge in T-5th with the PGA in Ireland. But a steady one-under par Round 02 allowed them to move to T-2nd before producing a strong two-under third round which took them to the very top of the leaderboard, one shot ahead of Team Holland and two shots ahead of Team Belgium, at four-under par (422).
“The week has been beautiful so far. The course is in such good condition and considering how much rain they had on the days prior to the tournament they have improved so much,” said Germany’s Captain, Dennis Küpper.
“The greens are not firm but they are fast, making it a lot of fun to play here, and the PGAs of Europe are doing a good job so we are enjoying it. I’ve had some good putts this week; the long game could be a bit better but there is room for improvement for tomorrow.”
Benjamin Frenzel added, “I didn’t play so well the first three rounds but I hope to be able to produce a good score for the team tomorrow and we will stay ahead of the rest of the field.”
The PGA of Holland, Captained by Ralph Miller with Mark Reynolds and Ruben Wechgelaer made an aggressive move up the leaderboard in Round 03.
Having started their round in T-7th at four-over par, a seven-under par Round 3 (139) placed them at the top of the leaderboard right until the very last hole where Germany then managed to jump ahead, resulting in a three-under (423) total.
At two-under par (424), and only two-shots behind the leaders, the PGA of Belgium sit in third place and, like the rest, will be putting on a fight in the final round to take the title.
