SAM TORRANCE finished three shots ahead of his nearest challenger after the third round of the Kronenbourg Open at Salo in Italy yesterday. The 39-year-old Scot battled against a blustery wind to shoot a one-over-par 73 for a 54-hole total of 210, but he bogeyed the 18th while Italy's Constantino Rocca, who had been five shots behind, sank a 6ft putt for a birdie three to close the gap by two. Torrance, seeking his first tournament victory since winning the Jersey Open nearly two years ago, received 150 bottles of champagne for leading the tournament at the halfway stage.
