Alps Tour Grand Final 2017
Golf des Iles Borromées (Stresa, Italy)
19-22 October 2017
Jack McDonald hanging on in joint fourth place, four strokes behind leader

A foggy start to the third round meant that play was delayed until 11:00 and then again until 12:15.
Tournament Director Alessandro Pia took the decision to start the round from both first and 10th tee to make sure that the round was completed in daylight.
Round of the day was a faultless seven under par 64 from France’s Julien Foret who jumped from tied 19th to tied 6th position. Ugo Coussaud of France shot a flawless 65 to jump from 9th to second place.

A rookie on the Alps Tour, Rozner has achieved five top five finishes this season but is still looking for his first win. “I’m just going to go all out to win the tournament tomorrow.”
A Challenge Tour card looks almost certain for Rozner at this stage of the tournament, this would allow him to join his older brother, Olivier, who has been playing there this season.
The top five players on the Alps Tour Order of Merit, not otherwise exempt, will receive a Challenge Tour card next season. So far the top four players, Adria Arnaus, Ugo Coussaud, Antoine Rozner and Lars Van Meijel look set to gain keep their top four spots.
France’s Robin Roussel who currently occupies 5th place on the ranking could be in danger from either Spain’s David Borda or Austria’s Lukas Nemecz who could out Roussel with a strong finish tomorrow.
Overnight leader Maxime Radureau had a torrid time on the course and dropped to 21st place, shooting a 79, +8, 16 shots worse than yesterday’s score.
Jack McDonald from Ayrshire, the first-round leader with a 65, has since shot rounds of 69 and 70. He has had double bogey 6s in both his second and third rounds and is joint fourth on 204, four off the lead.
Daniel Young from Perth has dropped out of the leading 10 to be T22 on 211 with rounds of 67, 70 and 74
