Westwood double bogey at 18 but still leads by one going into final Made in Denmark round

Lee Westwood will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Made in Denmark after a dramatic third day at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club.
The Englishman entered Saturday two shots off the lead but a sensational run of five birdies in a row after the turn handed him a three-shot lead as the Ryder Cup Vice Captain delighted the large crowds.
A double-bogey at the last after finding water off the tee then dropped him back to 16 under with a 67 and opened the door to the rest of the field.
England's Steven Brown fired a brilliant 63 to sit at 15 under alongside countryman Jonathan Thomson and Belgian Thomas Detry, with another Englishman in Matt Wallace a further shot back.
In the quest to make the Ryder Cup Team, Thorbjørn Olesen came into the week knowing a two-way tie for seventh or better would guarantee his place at Le Golf National, with Matthew Fitzpatrick needing a victory and hoping that Olesen stumbles.
The Dane carded a 67 to surge up the leaderboard before Fitzpatrick went one better to sit three shots ahead of Olesen but six off the lead.
Eddie Pepperell could also qualify with a victory but he carded a 74 to sit at three under.
