While Law had no bogey, he is tied at fourth place with Bjerregaard (six-under-66). “It was one of those days, with a bogey start as well and you’re thinking it’s not an ideal start,” Forrest said. “The first couple of days I played nicely but couldn’t get anything going and didn’t really make a putt. Today I changed my putting grip and I made pretty much everything. I think Lucas’ putter from yesterday might have rubbed off on me a little bit!”.
