Peter Lawrie was in top spot at the Czech Open in Celadna today after Ryder Cup-chasing Swede Peter Hanson threw away a four-shot overnight advantage
Without a bogey in 29 holes Hanson had three in a row from the second and after fighting his way back into the lead double-bogeyed the 12th.
Little-known European Tour rookie Gary Boyd, without a top-10 finish to his name on the circuit, birdied five of his first eight holes to turn in 31 before three-putting the 11th as the tension built.
Lawrie, meanwhile, had a magical run of four birdies and an eagle around the turn and with one hole to play was also 10 under.
Boyd three-putted again on the short 15th and that handed the outright lead to Lawrie just as he made a three-foot par putt on the last for a 66 and 10-under target.
Simon Dyson, Hanson and Boyd were one behind – and so was Londoner Anthony Wall when he chipped in at the last for 67.
As for Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez, eighth on the points table and looking to secure a fourth cap, he fell back from second to joint seventh after 12 holes.
