Porsche European Open, six golfers in lead

DP World Tour golfers continue to animate a very tight Porsche European Open 2023 ($2 million prize pool). The German event, born in 1978, sees in fact 6 golfers in the lead when there are only 18 holes left. Everything will then be decided in a final fiery Sunday round.

At the end of the third round we find the English Jordan Smith, the Northern Irishman Tom McKibbin, the Dane John Axelsen, the Scotsman David Law, the Swede Alexander Bjork and the Frenchman Julien Guerrier in the lead with a score of -6 (213 hits).

The latter is undoubtedly the best of the day: the transalpine scores a superb -6, climbing up 20 positions. On the par 73 course of the Green Eagle Golf Courses in Hamburg (Germany) the fight is certainly not limited to the six leaders.

The German Marcel Siem is only one length behind the pacesetter, while the landlord Maximilian Kiefer, the Scotsman Ewen Ferguson and the Englishman Paul Waring close the top ten with -4. -3 and eleventh place solo for the Iberian Santiago Tarrio.

Bad day for the Italians, who are unable to enter the tussle for victory. Paired in 37th position with the score of +3 Edoardo Molinari, Renato Paratore and Francesco Laporta. Tomorrow space for the last pyrotechnic round, in which at least 15 golfers can enter the challenge for the final victory of the Teutonic event.

Hamburg is a city-state in Germany, formerly part of the Hanseatic League, located on the Elbe River estuary. With about 1.85 million inhabitants, it is the second most populous city in Germany, after the capital Berlin, and it is also the most populous non-capital city in the European Union.

The Port of Hamburg is one of the most important ports in the world which, together with the international airport, makes Hamburg an important global logistics centre. From an economic point of view, the metropolis is recognized in the fields of aerospace technology, life sciences, information technology, as well as the consumer goods industry and the media.

Since 1996 Hamburg has also been the seat of the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (TIDM). Hamburg, in line with its Hanseatic past, is still today a city-state and officially bears the title of Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg ("Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg").

In 2019[2] a study by the global consultancy Mercer ranked Hamburg 19th among the 20 cities in the world with the best quality of life.
