Bernd Wiesberger remains on track for consecutive Made In HimmerLand titles after maintaining a one-shot lead heading into the final round in Denmark.

The world No.65 – who won the event in 2019 – mixed six birdies with three bogeys en route to a three-under 68, taking him to 14 under and one ahead of Sweden’s Alexander Bjork.

Laurie Canter had a round of the day at 64 to move up to third place and less than three off the lead, with Richard Bland – Betfred British Masters winner earlier this month – four out of rhythm and the one of the six out of ten players.

“It was not so easy today in terms of goals and I had to manage a bit,” said Wiesberger. “I had some good breaks and some courageous ups and downs as well. I’m obviously not happy with the last hole, but I’m definitely in a good position for tomorrow.”

Wiesberger, who started the day with a two-stroke lead, converted to eight feet in the second but followed back-to-back birdie opportunities from the fourth as he found water on the sixth tee on the way to a bogey.

The Austrian took advantage of the eighth par five but failed to convert from eight feet to save the par in the next, only to come back in the lead rolling a six foot in the 10th and out of the thick grass in the 12th for an unlikely birdie.

Wiesberger went back and forth for a birdie in the 14th drivable par-foursome and took a point blank shot for the win in the 17th, only for bogey the last to reduce his lead to one.

Bjork birdied long distance in the second and third before responding to a bogey in the fourth by winning two putts in the par-five next, the Swede canceling an abandoned shot in the sixth by registering three consecutive birdies around the turn for briefly become tied for the lead.

The world No.289 drained a 20-footer in the 16th and struggled to save the par on his to stay at 13 under, while Canter reached the turn at the 30 and added a birdie in the 13th to jump to the third place.

“I think I played really well the entire round,” said Bjork. “I gave myself a lot of opportunities to put in birdie putts and made quite a few, so overall a solid lap.”

Bland is joined in tied for fourth by Matthias Schwab, Masahiro Kawamura, Josh Geary, Jason Scrivener and Kurt Kitayama, while England’s Jordan Smith is one of four players sitting five behind in a tie for tenth.
