Canter and McGowan take 3-shot lead at Italian Open

BRESCIA, Italy (AP) — Englishmen Laurie Canter and Ross McGowan have a three-shot lead entering the final round of the Italian Open.

Canter, who is looking for a wire-to-wire victory and a first European Tour title after his opening-round 60, shot a 3-under 69 in the third round on Saturday.

McGowan, who has had just one top-10 finish on the European Tour over the last four seasons, carded a 67. The English players had 19-under totals of 197.

Dean Burmester of South Africa was three strokes behind the leaders, and Nicolas Colsaerts and Sebastian Heisele were one stroke further back at Chervò Golf Club.
