THOMAS Detry and Matt Fitzpatrick take a one-stroke lead over world number one Jon Rahm into the final round of the abrdn Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club after Saturday’s play.

Englishman Fitzpatrick carded a four-under-par round of 67 to move to 14 under and was joined by Detry, who started the day in a share of the lead, after the Belgian carded a three-under-par 68.

Fitzpatrick is seeking a seventh European Tour victory - and a third on the Rolex Series - while Detry will go in search of his maiden European Tour title.

Rahm, winner of last month’s US Open, carded a two-under-par 69 to move to 13-under, one stroke behind the leaders, as he looks to win once again in his first appearance since his triumph at Torrey Pines.

Australian Lucas Herbert, winner of last week’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, climbed 19 places on the leaderboard into fourth on 12-under after a seven-under-par round of 64.

He is one stroke ahead of compatriots Min Woo Lee and Wade Ormsby, and American Scottie Scheffler.

The highest-placed Scotsmen, David Law and Richie Ramsay, are one stroke further back at 10-under in a tie for eighth place with seven other players, including Lee Westwood, Xander Schauffele and Padraig Harrington.

East Lothian’s Grant Forrest carded a one-over 72 on Saturday to drop to four-under overall, putting him in a tie for 57th place.

The tournament concludes tomorrow (Sunday).
