Netherlands’ Darius Van Driel and England’s Josh Loughrey share the lead of 2015 Citadelle Trophy International. With -10 total, they have a short advantage over Matt Wallace going into final round with -9.

Overnight leader Loughrey managed to keep a foot on the first step of the podium. He scored 70, -2, with 3 birdies and one eagle. Van Driel improve his position to climb on the same step thanks to 68-4-under-par-card. Van Driel holed 8 birdies and his skill on greens is a real asset if he managed to avoid mistakes.

Matt Wallace, third on his own, has been many time in contention this season and this experience makes him a true challenger for a maiden win on the Alps Tour.

Third round is called moving day and it deserved this name for one player, France’s Dominique Nouailhac who signed for the best score of the day, 66, -6. The 45 year old player from Paris proved that despite the course length, a good sense of game is the key on Preisch golf course. The former Challenge player holed 6 birdies and only dropped a shot on the last hole. He moved to the 4th place alongside three other players, his fellow countryman Simon Fernoux, Tom Shadbolt of England and young Spanish amateur, Scott Fernandez who recorded six birdies in a row from the 4th hole today.
