“I played against Paul the week before The Open in the European Team Championship and managed to beat him on the 20th hole”, said Mullen.
Donaldson made one of the biggest moves of the day with a seven-under-par 65 at Kingsbarns, while Dunne stayed in touch with a two-under-par 70 at the Old Course. “It was fantastic out there today”.
Last month at Royal Lytham, Mullen became only the fourth GB&I player to post a 4-0 record in the biennial matches.
“I’ve been playing golf a long time and haven’t got a clue anymore”, Dredge told Sky Sports 4. But Pablo Larrazabal helped me along, such a nice guy. I’ve played a lot of golf which is what I do on my weeks off. I’m sure there is going to be a bit of rust there somewhere but I feel like I’m playing well. The players alternated between the three courses on the first three days, with the final round held at St. Andrews. I’m looking forward to playing both those courses.
Kristoffer Broberg: “I played really well from tee to green today”. I’m happy with my score. I’m just trying to let them do what they do and concentrate on what I do. I played a few good golf from then on in. Kingsbarns is such a lovely course, it’s in great condition and the weather is fantastic. He shot up from 1,109 in the world rankings to 79th at the end of that year, after finishing runner-up in the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.
Mullen admitted that he couldn’t have wished for a better tournament at which to make his European Tour debut.
Heartthrob actor Jamie Dornan joined other celebrated stars of entertainment and many great sporting legends in the field, celebrating the 15th staging of this classic event, which raises significant funds for charity through the Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation.
Gary Hurley got around Carnoustie in 72 shots to remain one over, while Pail McGinley round of 73 at Kingsbarns sees him tied for 141st position on four over.
Australian Marcus Fraser was a further shot back having signed for a bogey-free 66 and he was alongside Moritz Lampert who was six under through 14 holes. He was the amateur hero who led the British Open after 54 holes this year at St. Andrews.
