Fraser Takes Lead in SAS Masters
Marcus Fraser birdied three holes on the back nine for a 3-under 70 Saturday to take the lead going into the last round of the Scandinavian Masters golf touranment. The Australian had a 54-hole total of 8-under 211 on the 7,665-yard Barsebäck Golf Club course - the longest in European Tour history.
He advanced from five shots behind to a one-stroke lead as the pacesetters struggled on the long course.
Jeppe Huldahl of Denmark (70), Martin Erlandsson of Sweden (72) and Lee Slattery of England (75) shared second place at 212. Overnight leader Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina slipped to a 77 and dropped to fifth with Marcus Higley of England (70).
Henrik Stenson, a Barseback member who will move to fifth when the world rankings are updated Monday, bogeyed seven of the first nine holes and signed for a 79. That left the Swede tied for 75th among the 78 players who made Friday's cut.
