Wrag Barn golfer Josh Loughrey shares the lead going into the final round of the Tunisian Open on Sunday.

Loughrey is one of three players tied on 10 under par with just 18 holes to play after shooting a third round 71.

The 24-year-old held the overnight lead by two shots but France’s Dominique Nouailhac and Italy’s Joon Kim both shot superb rounds to reel in Loughrey.

Loughrey admitted it was a tough day but is taking the positives going into the final day’s play.

“I could feel the pressure today, what a difference it is to lead. I made some mistakes, I bogeyed the seventh, the 11th and the 13th but I finished with a good up and down on the last which was nice.”

 

Loughrey, Nouailhac and Kim barely have breathing space at the top of the leaderboard with Liam Harper and Matthieu Pavon just one shot back and Enrico Di Nitto and Damien Perrier two shots adrift of the lead.
