TURIN, Italy -- Marcus Fraser shot a 4-under 68 Saturday, giving the Australian a one-stroke lead over Italy's Francesco Molinari, Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts and Sweden's Joakim Lagergren after three rounds of the Italian Open.
Fraser had a chip-in birdie on the sixth hole in a bogey-free round that left him at 11 under.
Molinari is trying to capture his national tournament for the second time, having won in Milan in 2006. He became a member of the Golf Club Torino when he was 8 years old.
Fraser says he faces a tough closing round with Molinari just one shot behind and the crowd pulling for him. But, he adds, he will have to play his game and ``try and spoil the party, I suppose.''
