BELEK---Ian Poulter squandered a
six-shot lead yesterday to trail Wade
Ormsby of Australia by one stroke
ahead of the final round at the Turk-
ish Airlines Open.
Ormsby eagled his ninth hole and
finished with a third-round 68 for a
12-under 204 total on the Mont-
gomerie Maxx Royal course.
Poulter shot 75, nine strokes more
than his second-round 66 which he
completed earlier in the storm-dis-
rupted event. The Englishman started
the third round six shots clear of five
players, including Ormsby.
Poulter shares second with Lee
Westwood (67) and Marcel Siem (66).
After a bogey to start his third round
Poulter continued to struggle before
a double bogey at the par four 15th
when his wedge shot hit a tree.
"I wasn't aggressive enough this
afternoon and I just made mistakes,
and notably on 15," said Poulter. "That
was a real lack of judgment there that
led to a double bogey, which was a
real shame. I've now brought a lot of
players back into the fray. Their dinner
is going to taste lovely tonight and
mine is going to taste horrible."
The 34-year-old Ormsby, ranked
240th in the world, is one round away
from nearly doubling the prize money
he's earned on the European Tour since
making his debut in 2004. Victory
would also mean a first appearance in
the season-finale DP World Tour
Championship in Dubai.
"I was due to fly to Melbourne next
week and play in the Australian Mas-
ters but then I would be delighted to
change my flight to Dubai," Ormsby
Siem birdied four of his last eight
holes as the German seeks victory just
a fortnight after capturing the BMW
Masters in Shanghai.
If he wins this tournament, Siem
could potentially still deny Rory McIl-
roy the Race to Dubai crown.
"The Race to Dubai looks like it is
becoming more interesting now for
everybody and for sure I'll give it a
shot tomorrow," said Siem. "That's
what we are out here for."
And John Daly hasn't ruled out his
chances in Turkey after adding a 67
to move to a share of eighth place on
"It would be a nice way to round
off my last event of the year but then
I've got to hit more fairways tomorrow,"
the American said. "I'm only four shots
behind and you can make up that
deficit in a few holes out here." (AP)
