Ross Fisher leads the Irish Open 2010 after the third round but not by as many shots as looked likely. Fisher got off to a flyer with four birdies in his first seven holes but a double and two bogeys brought him back to 12 under.
Fisher is one shot clear of our Tuesday’s “Hot on the Range” pick Chris Wood who carded a 66 alongside an increasingly dejected Rory McIlroy who ended the day on 2 under after a 76. Francesco Molinari is also just one behind Fisher and still looks dangerous.
Padraig Harrington is just three back on 9 under. He pulled his drive into the hazard on 18 and a after a drop out and long iron to the green he produced one of the highlights of this year’s Irish Open by draining a 30 footer for par. His playing partner Gonzo Castano took double on the hole to finish 10 under and though down, he like Harrington, is certainly not out. Pic: Padraig before his third round with some rubber tubing attached to his knee. Apparently it help ensure nobody nicks any of his clubs!
