shot back when he bogeyed the fourth. He came back with four birdies in a 6-
hole span from the sixth to the 11th to jump to 12-under.

Brand stumbled to a bogey at the 15th, but erased that error with a birdie on
the 16th. He parred the last two to seal the win.

Andrew Oldcorn fired an 11-under 61 to grab a share of second at minus-11. He
was joined there by David J. Russell (67) and Angel Franco (69). Oldcorn had
11 birdies through 15 holes, but parred the final three. Russell also had a
bogey-free round, while Franco jumped into a share of second thanks to an
eagle on the par-5 17th.

Peter Fowler closed with a 66 to end at 10-under-par 206. He was joined there
by Paul Eales (67), Steen Tinning (68) and Philip Golding (69).
