KILLARNEY, Ireland (AP) — Ross Fisher of England will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Irish Open after shooting an even-par 71 on Saturday.
Fisher built a five-shot lead after opening his third round with four birdies in his first seven holes. But after putting his approach shot into the water the par-4 eighth, Fisher made double bogey and dropped two more shots late in his round to finish at 12 under.
That gave renewed hope to his playing partner Francesco Molinari, who at one point was six strokes off the lead. Molinari shot a 69 to finish one behind Fisher.
