Choi and Johnson Tie in Sweden





The home favourite Richard Johnson shares the lead with Korean KJ Choi heading into the final day at the Scandinavian Masters.

Choi and Johnson tie for the lead on ten under with Oosthuizen the closest challenger on nine under. The South African had looked certain to join the leaders on ten under but found the bunker on the 18th and followed up with a clumsy putt.

The ‘home of golf’ champion still remains a strong challenger and could still yet make history being the first player to follow up an Claret Jug victory with another European Tour win.

It was a windy and wet day for the golfers and most of the field struggled in the conditions, things got extremely wet for the joint leader Choi as he opted to fish his own ball out of the water on the 13th to save par.

On the day New Zealand’s Mark Brown was a highlight with an impressive 67 in the tricky conditions. This leaves him on seven under for the tournament and only three strokes off the pace. He joins Argentina’s Rafa Echenique in joint fourth who finished the third day with a solid par 72.

Still looking at that last Ryder Cup spot is Edoardo Molinari who is looking for join his brother in the squad. He sits in fifth place and a top two finish could see him make the all important list.

The two leaders only hold two European Tour titles between them, Johnson won eight years ago in Australia and Choi has previously won in Germany
