DAVID Horsey heads into the final day's play in the Saudi International tied in seventh place.

The Wilmslow resident, who is attached to Styal Golf Club where he came through the junior ranks, finished day three four shots off the pace.

After equalling the course record of 61 on Thursday, the follwoing 24 hours were disrupted by bad weather and Horsey had to complete the final six holes of round two on the third day before his scheduled 18 holes.

Scores of 71 and 69 leave him nine under par ahead of today's final play.

World number one Dustin Johnson takes a two-shot lead into the final round as he bids to win the Saudi International for the second time in three years.

Johnson, who was also runner-up in 2020, completed a delayed second round of 64 on Saturday morning and then added a 66 to reach 13 under par, with France’s Victor Perez also shooting 66 to lie in second place on 11 under.

Tyrrell Hatton, who won in Abu Dhabi a fortnight ago, is a shot further back alongside fellow Englishman Andy Sullivan, American Tony Finau and Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen.
