Niall Turner shot a four under par 67 overnight to jump up to 8th spot in the Venetian Macau Open on the Asian Tour. That’s three under par rounds for Turner in the event where he has made the cut for a second successive week. Going into the third round the Muskerry man was in 19th place on four under. Another good round tomorrow should see him earn a sizeable cheque and improve his chances of retaining his full tour card.
Turner had an opening bogey followed by two birdies, and he followed that with another bogey in an eventful four holes. He added four birdies in the remaining holes to sign for a 67. Royal Dublin’s Niall Kearney missed the cut after two successive 73’s.
