Hebert takes command in China with Campillo to three blows

The Frenchman will face on Sunday the decisive day in search of his first victory in the European circuit.


The French Benjamin Hebert, with seven birdies and an eagle in front of a single bogey in the third course, won the liderato in the China Open, three strokes ahead of the Spanish Jorge Campillo and the Finn Mikko Korhonen , who share the second place.

Hebert set, above all, an exceptional second round: 28 strokes, one single of the record of the European circuit, thanks to his six birdies and an eagle in that section. The Frenchman will face on Sunday the decisive day with an advantage of three shots over his closest rivals in search of his first victory in the European circuit.

Campillo, which in the first two days had presented cards of 65 and 69 strokes and was three strokes from the head, remains at the same distance after finishing the third in 68 strokes (with five birdies and a bogey), although the leader has changed. The Chinese Ashun Wu, leader on Friday, fell back to fourth after presenting a card of 72.

El Cacereño, who comes from winning the Moroccan Open, is not the only Spanish well classified. The Madrid Nacho Elvira, with 205 hits, to six of the leader, shares the sixth position with the Finnish Tapio Pulkkanen. The young Barcelona Adri Arnaus fell to post 44 after finishing his third round in 71 strokes, six more than on Friday, while the Paraguayan Fabrizio Zanotti repeated his 72 of the second day and is in the position 52.
